Between the Lines

Reading “Frantumaglia” by Elena Ferrante now — well, one of my many books on the go strewn about and picked up when found. The book is an exhilarating inside look at her process, her struggles and victories. Much like her work, in these letters, emails and other missives, the book shows Ferrante to be engulfed in the swirl of events sometimes beyond her control, sometimes completely within her own agency. I’m a huge fan and appreciate in her novels the gaze is female rather than male for a change.
