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

This stylish novel from the author of The Days of Abandonment is set in a beguiling but often hostile Naples, whose chaotic, suffocating streets become one of the book’s central motifs. A story about mothers and daughters and the complicated knot of lies and emotions that binds them, it is a must-listen.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ferrante’s polished language belies the rawness of her imagery.”

    New Yorker

  • “In tactile, beautifully restrained prose…Ferrante has forcefully delineated how the complicity in violence against women perpetuates a brutal cycle of repetition and silence.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “With the quick-paced mystery guiding the story, Delia explores her relationship with her mother, unraveling memories and secrets repressed since childhood and coming to terms with an upbringing filled with jealousy and violence. As the title indicates, Ferrante’s vivid and powerful descriptions can be somewhat troubling at times, leaving the reader with a memorable sense of unease.”

    Library Journal

  • “Pseudonymous Italian novelist Ferrante delivers a brutally frank tale about the dangerous intersection of rage and desire.”
