Troubling Love

Elena Ferrante


ISBN 9781933372167


Set in Naples, Italy, this debut novel by New York Times bestselling author Elena Ferrante ( My Brilliant Friend, The Days of Abandonment) tells a story about mothers and daughters and the complicated knot of lies, emotions, andshared history than binds them.

Following her mother's untimely and mysterious death, Delia embarks on a voyage of discovery through the chaotic, suffocating streets of her native Naples in search of the truth about her family. A series of mysterious telephone calls leads her to compelling and disturbing revelations about her mother's final days.

As the New York Times wrote about this novel, "the raging, torrential voice of the author is something rare."

Troubling Love is indeed a rare look into the abiding preoccupations and obsessions that bring millions of readers all over the world to her fiction.

Reviews, News & Interviews:

Troubling Love is a psychological mystery...Ferrante is fascinated by the moments when a personality—like a wire stretched too far from its power source—shorts and corrodes. David Lipsky, The New York Times

A tour de force, Troubling Love is a harrowing tour of a feminine psyche under siege. Together with The Days of Abandonment, it confirms Ferrante's reputation as one of Italy's best contemporary novelists. Seattle Times
