Mark your calendars! November 1 is promising to be a grande affair: not only because it happens to be Mr. Fabulous's birthday but also because Elena Ferrante, one of the world's most talked about authors will be releasing not one, but two books on that same day.
It is no exaggeration to say that Elena Ferrante has captivated the world's attention not only with her worldwide best-selling Neapolitan novels but also because, unlike most writers, she has shunned the limelight that follows success and opted instead to remain in the shadows letting her work best represent who she is. Very little is known about the author and many have gone so far as to speculate that 'she' may actually be a 'he'. Whatever the case, one fact remains true: Elena Ferrante's books have so far been a major success around the world.
In November, Elena Ferrante's US publisher, Europa Edition, are publishing 'Frantumaglia', a collection of interviews and letters by the mysterious author as well as the author's first children book entitled 'The Beach at Night'. Both books are translated by Ann Goldstein.
The 'Wall Street Journal' have had exclusive access to the art cover of 'Frantumaglia' which they released in a story on July 12th. According to the publication, the book 'promises to offer the most complete look yet at the woman behind the mega best-selling Neapolitan novels'.
