More Ferrante

I’ve┬áseen that women are raving about these books, which in their opinion reflect a precise understanding of friendships in the world of women.

From the book, reflection on an age-old question: why men do what they do and the way they do it.

“You know why the Solara brothers think they’re the masters of the neighbourhood?”

“Because they are aggressive”

“No, because they have money”

“You think so?”

“Of course. Have you noticed that they’ve never bothered Pinuccia Carracci?”

“Yes.”

“And you know why they acted the way they did with Ada?”

“No.”

“Because Ada doesn’t have a father, her brother Antonio counts for nothing, and she helps Melina clean the stairs of the building.”

I wonder if the original Italian version is as simple.
