The Lying Life of Adults 

The Days of Abandonment:
A woman, abandoned by her husband with two young children to care for, finds herself literally trapped within the four walls of their high-rise apartment and is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity and the possibility that life may never return to normal. I could not put this novel down. Elena Ferrante wi The Lovely Bones.

The Lost Daughter
Leda is a middle-aged divorcée devoted to her work as an English teacher and to her two children. When her daughters leave home to be with their father in Canada, Leda anticipates a period of loneliness and longing. Instead, slightly embarrassed by the sensation, she feels liberated, as if her life has become lighter, easier. She decides to take a holiday by the sea, in a small coastal town in southern Italy. But after a few days of calm and quiet, things begin to take a menacing turn.

The Lying Life of Adults 
Giovanna’s search leads her to two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: the Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and the Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity. Adrift, she vacillates between these two cities, falling into one then climbing back to the other. Set in a divided Naples, The Lying Life of Adults is a singular portrayal of the transition from childhood to adolescence to adulthood.
