Translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein
Hardcover・$26.00・September 1, 2020

From the New York Times best-selling author of My Brilliant Friend comes another gripping and unforgettable Neapolitan story about the transition from childhood to adolescence to adulthood. Giovanna is searching for her reflection in two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity. She moves from one to the other in search of the truth, but neither city seems to offer answers or escape. Already hailed as “the literary event of the year” (ELLE Magazine).
