MY BRILLIANT FRIEND Neapolitan, Book 1

by | Read by Hillary Huber

Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This novel, the first in a trilogy by Italian author Elena Ferrante, offers the engrossing story of two friends, Elena and Lila, whose lives crisscross over the years. Hillary Huber’s subtly shaded performance couldn’t be better as she reveals the complexities that separate and connect the two women. When adult Elena learns that her volatile, impulsive childhood companion has disappeared, she decides to write Lila’s story and the story of their lives together. Ferrante’s dense, rich prose provides the perfect palette for Huber’s artistry. She draws clear portraits of each woman and her family, as well as the small town outside of Naples where they live just after WWII. Huber’s delivery of this well-plotted, absorbing story of friendship will leave listeners wanting more. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
