Remember that time that Baltar was in jail after ucking up yet again and he talks to Lee I think inally opening up to him a little bit about where he s rom Fuck I wish I could The World in the Curl: An Unconventional History of Surfing find it But while he s talking to him hanging his head in the darkness with his hair covering hisace he slowly lets his cultured British accent morph into a thick gravelly hick voice that is clearly his natural tone He makes it as scary as possible throwing it at aristocratic Lee like a weapon moving to the bars with red eyes like he s morphing himself into the monster he believes himself to be It s like that but mannered expressed in ladylike spare lines like this I was so glad that no one in that nice little Song of the Forest family had asked me as happenedreuently where I came rom what my ather did and my mother I was I I I It makes sense why later in the novel there s a passage about how so many characters are confused when Lila wants to go take a job in the center of the city She s a veritable ueen in the old neighborhood and can lord it over anyone there lend them money show them up in clothes people are now afraid to cross her Why would she want to go to the nicer part of town where her illusions will be shattered Why would she want to take that away that illusion rom herselfThis class angle had a lot to do with the ugly place I was telling you about before which is the deep seeded insecurity that runs throughout this entire book But while class and place and atmosphere are the bedrock reasons the insecurity I m talking about here has to do with riendship This series is after all about a riendship No matter what other powerful stuff buttresses it under the surface that provided it with its oundation we re Sextasy: Master the Timeless Techniques of Tantra, Tao, and the Kama Sutra to Take Lovemaking to New Heights far enough along into the lives of these girls that theriendship has now taken on a life of its own We ve reached the point as happens in a lot of long running Still Life with Chickens friendships where the thing has become overripe it s become something rotten and possibly poisonous something that probably should have been dumped overboard a long time ago But you re still at the place where you can t uite let it goEspecially when it s a powerful relationship with someone as charismatic as Lila someone you looked up to someone you put on a pedestal and set up as a sort of personal musedeitydevil It s aascinating minute examination of a part of the conseuences of an expanding consciousness of the world namely that you realize that you your Still Life with Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea friend and your courtyard are no longer the center of the universe Elena is starting to become aware inits and starts of the Paradox Bound fact that Lila has a personality and limits just like she does She starts to say things like this is what she does She starts to express annoyance and there s even aew times where she pathetically tries to keep Lila out In the past there had been Lila a continuous happy detour into surprising lands Now everything I was I wanted to get rom myself I was almost nineteen I would never again depend on someone and I would never again miss someone And even a whole chapter where she experiments writing about her own life without referencing Lila at all something neat clean undisturbed And something that lasts two pages before Lila returns How easy it is to tell the story of myself without Lila time uiets down and the important acts slide along the thread of the years like suitcases on a conveyor belt at an airport you pick them up and put them on a page and it s doneIt s complicated to recount what happened to her in those years The belt slows down accelerates swerves abruptly goes off the tracks The suitcases STFU, Parents: The Jaw-Dropping, Self-Indulgent, and Occasionally Rage-Inducing World of Parent Overshare fall offly open her things end up among mine to accommodate them I am compelled to return to the narrative concerning me and that had come to be unobstructed and expand phrases that now sound too concise My life orces me to imagine what hers would have been if what happened to me had happened to her what use she would have made of my luck And her life continuously appears in mine in the words that I ve uttered in which there s often an echo of hers in a particular gesture that is an adaptation of a gesture of hers in may less which is such because of her in my which is yielding to the orce of her less She can t leave her behind There s a lot of reasons why but at the heart of it is another class battle of sorts to do with

s identification as an intellectual a discussion of different kinds of intelligence and which one is better Lila s is the kind that poets romanticize people are magnetically drawn to that succeeds when it shouldn t but also continues to push and push until it inevitably breaks something Is it possible that you must always do harm Lila When will you stop When will your energy diminish will you be distracted when will you Syncopated: An Anthology of Nonfiction Picto-Essays finally collapse like a sleepy sentinel When will you grow wide and sit at the cash register in the new neighborhood with your stomach swelling and make Pinuccia and aunt and me me me leave to go my own way runs the imagined inner monologue of one of the characters While Elena s well Elena s is kind that gets you through high school and college and into a steady job and the plaudits of those around you It s the sort of self punishing struggle that most intellectuals put themselves through at some point and probably most of their lives if they identify as or are put into the role of a smart kid early enough You were that kid right A lot of us were But then you met that other kid right The one who was smarter than you If you re me you met a whole group of them in which you were the least intelligent person If you re lucky youelt challenged you Are All Guys Assholes?: More Than 1,000 Guys in 10 Cities Reveal Why They're Not, Why They Sometimes Act Like They Are, and How Understanding Their ...

important happy news with her news that she is convinced will change things will ignite something good in her again And she does but then Lila s reaction what she sees her do in response And what happens to her what she thinks she realizes It was a gut punch that I can only describe by going back to Baltar again Remember in the last episoe he s with Six and they re trying to igure out how they

100 books about them 45 stars Update Bumping this one up to a 5 stars because after a Suspicion at Seven: A Lois Meade Mystery few months of thinking about it it s definitely myavorite in the series I keep inding myself thinking of certain scenes and elements of this installment and I love it I m not sure if I can write a coherent review of this book right now There are so many layers to this story so much to unpack and yet still as this is book 2 of 4 so much left to discover I am incredibly impressed by Ferrante s ability to develop characters that are real real than almost any other characters I have read before They have ambition are lawed The Day Fidel Died fight and love and inspireThere is high probability I w From L amie prodigieuse Choice of roleYou can be either a bad girl

Ta una sonrisa para descubrir ué se esconde tras esos vestidos caros ue se acoplan al cuerpo de Lila como un guante provocando a los hombres del barrio Basta un gesto para ue Nanú sepa ue Lila va a cometer una locura y nadie será capaz de detenerlaNápoles la ciudad ue las ha visto crecer es el escenario de esta comedia ue tiene la uerza de un drama y se uedará entre nosotros como una e las obras maestras de la literatura del siglo K that sets my head spinning can be a good thing and it was here An accomplished writer like Ferrante can draw you in like you are watching the drama play out right in Stories for a Kindred Heart: Over 100 Treasures to Touch Your Soul front of you It did reuire however a step backrom time to time to relax and catch my breath A bit of re energizing is necessary to take it all in Imagine yourself a teenager still with all the complexities of emotions the uncertainties the jealousies and the sometimes rash behaviors attributed to you and your riends and acuaintances But now add in a degree of poverty that most of us are ortunately not accustomed to violence that I pray most are not subjected to and the expectations and obstacles Speak Through the Wind faced by women in the late 1950s and early 1960s This is precisely what Lila and Elena deal with and what we as readers are privy to through the lens provided to us Now if you haven t read theirst book in the series you may want to stop reading this review at this point I m not revealing any spoilers but I personally didn t want any details before reading and you may Stories for a Teen's Heart feel the same I just want to talk about Lila and Elena a little bit Throughout the novel Iound myself reflecting on the two and who was better off who the stronger of the two characters etc I think the opening uote to my review really sums up the relationship between the two and I came to my own conclusion whether right or wrong that each completes the other Elena may have had educational opportunities but without the encouragement of Lila as well as a sense of competition she may not have had the drive to take advantage of those opportunities Lila inds herself in a marriage that does not suit her rom the beginning but she will ight or something She has material possessions and after all wasn t that the dream these two had as little girls Wasn t that the goal of going to school and receiving an education They wanted to become rich But happiness is elusive Perhaps riches are not enough Is it too late to re make oneself and achieve something I think Lila can sustain herself knowing that Elena has been successful with her studies Maybe there are ways to rise above the poverty and the violence of the neighborhood other than money The narrative is written rom Elena s point of view but we also get occasional glimpses rom Lila s point of view through a series of notebooks she entrusted to Elena Notebooks that Elena was not given permission to read but that is neither here nor there If your best riend gave you her diary or safekeeping what would you do Maybe your The Best Canadian Animal Stories: Classic Tales by Master Storytellers friend gave you the diary because she couldn t express the deepesteelings in her heart and she knew that you would not be able to resist In this way you can share your thoughts in a less confrontational manner perhaps I don t really know but it was certainly a clever means The Vagabonds for us to glean than just Elena s point of view here I don t know that I can say much about this book or this series it s one that I could contemplateor an indefinite amount of time So much happens in these pages but none of it is confusing There are a lot of names and variations of names The Gilgul of Park Avenue for the same person A guide at theront of the book helps with this Otherwise it The Last of the Renshai flows seamlessly and is written skillfully There is drama but I don t mean to say it s melodramatic Not in the least I will admit that it is addicting Oh and that ending I will read the next in the series albeit with a bit of a break in between Iinished Elena Ferrante s second volume a Even Eagles Need a Push: Learning to Soar in a Changing World few hours ago and I m overwhelmed by her power She writes with heringers stuck inside a electric plug She drills and drills all the way through the tiniest sensation till she reaches raw matter The story of the New Name is even entrancing than My brilliant riend the irst volume of the trilogy which I devoured Lila and Lena the two protagonists of volume one are now two women Their love hate relationship grows intricate so does their intellectual competition What a wonderful deep contradictory at times morbid violent yet luminous yet brilliant world does Ferrante s voice evoke I urge you to get your hands on this magnificent saga What s your ugly placeWe all have one We all have a place we uite deliberately do not go to That we are aware is there but have developed systems and defensive walls and jokes and denials in order to keep it out of the light of day It s the place you can t help but end up sometimes when something particularly embarrassing happens to you something tragic an epiphany about yourself that you didn t particularly want occurs to you It s the place where you were the person you never ever wanted to be lives and the memories of when that person came out that one time that you never want to think about againThat deep down dark pit of your stomach eeling that s welling up and over as that image comes to your brain That s it That s the visceral level of vulnerability insecurity ugliness and pain that I saw there And there is where you need to be to understand everything I m about to tell youBecause that place is where this novel goes This thing hit me where I live Which means as you can probably tell already that reading Story of a New Name is not something I would recommend or anyone in a At Sixes and Sevens fragile emotional state It isn tor anyone who is still too close to being an insecure bookish not uite teenager any with major self not uite teenager any with major self issues Even a The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole few years ago I think reading this might have sent me into a depressive melodramatic spiral like when I saw Melancholia which had to have been the literal worst thing I could have chosen to see while writing my thesis in aoreign country at a school The Last Honest Man: Mordecai Richler: An Oral Biography full of people smarter than me I saw it three times and lost a weekend before I could see straight againWhich is what may happen with Elena Ferrante Which is totally insane when you read these books objectively Or at least I think it would be I have no way of really telling right now Her style isor the most part this totally bare bald The Catholic Home faced thing that just tells you exactly what is happening to her characters in their mundane perfectly ordinary 1960s poor Italian lives The engine driving the drama that the things that keep happening keep right on damn happening to them and the second volume is no better Ferrante is as merciless as time marching on without a thoughtor her characters and their development who really could use some time in this stage of their personal development or other Ferrante like the harsh Naples neighborhood she raises her characters in doesn t allow herself to give a damn I can absolutely guarantee you whatever you sign up Sarah Binks for you should sign upor some shit happens and very little mercy granted because that s how it goes with Ferrante Sometimes I think that the main narrator s school and career arc is the mercy bone she threw us just to keep us rom looking awayThe second volume of this series ocuses on the girls late adolescence and post adolescence the years that Too Many Puppies! for most of us would be covered by late high school college and yourirst post college job As with the The Wanderers first novel the pages of the novel are covered over with a powerful atmosphere that burns right through the pages until you re sitting right with Lila and Elena with sand in your outdated bathing suit on the beach at Ischia standing on a street corner watching a toolashy sports car go by catching a glimpse of a movie star that looks like your The Last Dickens friend with Elena in a cramped corner of a bedroom like a modern Italian Fanny Price angrily swatting at mosuitoes and trying to keep still in the suffocating heat The courtyards of broken glass wailingrom the windows and women uncommented upon wearing bruises to work the next day is as sickeningly evoked as ever One of the ascinating atmospheric elements that Ferrante added demonstrated the stage of development where you become aware that you are not the center of the universe in a variety of ways in development where you become aware that you are not the center of the universe in a variety of ways in case or characters living in poverty and powerlessness most of them borne in Takedown: The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire forcibly upon you whether you like it or not Ferrante starts to introduce the gradual intrusion of politics and political identity tellingly it mostly shows in one tribal identity one wayor the kids to divide themselves mostly in increased accusations of Fascist pig and Red communist thrown around in place of remarks on one s ace and person and one kid going to one meeting and one going to another Elena also encounters this world but again not in itself but as a piece of currency in the game of the class system another piece of another kind of tribal mask that she s trying hard to don Professor Airota and his daughter had or example affectionate skirmishes on political subjects that I had heard about Diamantmysteriet from Pasualerom Nino but whose substance I knew almost nothing about Arguments like you ve been trapped by inter class collaboration you call it a trap I call it mediation mediation in which the Christian Democrats always and only win you re not reforming a thing in our place what would you do revolution revolution and revolution revolution is taking Italy out of the middle ages Like that a swift back and orth a polemical exercise that they both obviously enjoyed What I had never had and I now knew would always lack What was it I wasn t able to say precisely the training perhaps to eel that the uestions of the world were deeply connected to me the capacity to eel them as crucial and not purely as information to display at an exam in view of a good grade a mental conformation that didn t reduce everything to my own individual battle to the effort to be successful That one HIT ME HARD THIS IS IS A REALLY TOUGH me hard This is is a really tough on the class system and the unseen building damage that it does to the psyche The sort of psychology on display here is the sort of thing I learned in my urban teacher training program or learned irst hand when aced with some of my students Elena spends a great deal of the back half of this book anxiously trying to decode and adopt the unwritten rules of being middle class the words the clothes what I was trained to call the cultural knapsack that middle class kids often get seemingly by osmosis Ferrante shows the utter human waste that happens as a result invisible waste as ar as we re concerned the brilliant minds that never get a chance to take over the world the The Pocket Mommy fruit seller who is unexpectedly good at math the entrepreneurial ideas crushed by self confidence issues andamily suabbles It s much harder to look at than any of the wasted landscapes or shabby apartments that she describesAnd watching Elena sew her middle class mask onto her ace tighter and tighter laboring at it or years and watching the ugly ugly road that it takes to get there of which Ferrante only tells you the barest part but it isn t hard to guess it well did anyone else watch Battlestar Galatica Do you.

Elena Ferrante is an absolute marvel This was utterly ravishing How does she do it Structurally her novels could hardly be conservative her subject matter the raught As If Being 12 3/4 Isn't Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President! friendship of two women has been done to death And yet you re constantly left with theeeling that no one has ever done what she does before Or at least no one has done it with such searing insight and Stickman Odyssey, Book 2: The Wrath of Zozimos freshness Only a handful of writers can undress and get to the heart of women as lucidly and thrillingly as Ferrante Theirst hundred pages especially were uite simply a dazzling display of a writer removing all the paint and powder The Last of the Tribe from a woman sace mask and showing us the naked truths beneath Ferrante is like a kind of dream psychoanalysis She dispels all the og unravels all the knots of a woman s deepest eeling and elucidates in simple language the The Book of Air fount the hidden motive She always knows the secret as to why her women are doing what they do She once said in an interview that her ambition was to make theacts of ordinary life gripping She achieves this by elucidating the emotionalmotivational source of many of these acts She also has this extraordinary talent or easing into her narrative and explaining difficult subjects without sacrificing a single beat of the abulous driving momentum of her story There are no divergences in this novel every line is intrinsic to understanding Elena and Lila s struggles to achieve identity and autonomy For example the domestic violence in this novel is all the powerfully disturbing or the lack of emphasis she gives it as if it s no extraordinary than a trip to the shops It makes the domestic violence in The Seduction of Miranda Prosper for example A Girl Is a Halformed Thing seem written up and theatrical In The Warrior Princess of Pennyroyal Academy fact the ease with which sheeeds hugely complex and pivotal experience into her narrative makes most other contemporary novelists seem a bit written up and theatrical There s a leet ooted breeziness to Ferrante s storytelling which is uite simply bewitching in its ease of assurance I put off reading this or ages because or some reason I thought it might be a disappointment after My Brilliant Friend On the contrary it s even better For your whole life you love people and you never really know who they are Nunzia to Len p215This one s a heartbreaker So exuisitely rendered that you ll recognize your own hideous pain rising up to assail you again dear Reader your losses your miseries in the cause of love Ferrante makes universal the disparate pain all loving creatures suffer Toward the end when reality becomes too much Elizabeth I for some of the characters they descend into scarily dissociative states that surprise and rattleThe novel s narrative pleasure is dizzying Every action naturallyolds into the next the continuity is superb The clarity is extraordinary it never relents I ound myself slowing down to take in the richness as I would when reading a poem That s the paradox Ferrante incites in readers between wanting to gallop through the stunning tale to just gobble it up like cake and slowing down to take in the beauty of its structure and languageIt s the early 1960s in Naples and Lina Carracci n e Cerullo is newly and miserably married and living in virtual purdah with her husband Stefano whom she has uickly learned to hate because he is a tool of the Solaras who are Cammora Mr and Mrs Carracci live uite well in a new apartment with modern decor and lots of money because of their connection to these local criminals Lina we will recall rom volume one My Brilliant Friend was unable to go on with her education at age ten or so and was made to work in her Theres Always a Trail / Home in the Valley father s shoe shop Her chance of a higher education gone even though she was the smartest girl in the school she then had to resort to other means of self advancement namely marriage In the early going here it s not going so well Sheeels not without justification that Stefano tricked her into marriage So she refuses him the great gift and he beats her to a pulp regularly in effect raping his wifeIn her riend Len our narrator Lina sees her own lost dream of education still alive Yet Len s having her man problems too Her lover Antonio a car mechanic suspects her of interest in another ellow Nino who is intellectually Len s match in a way Antonio can never be Len stays with the blue collar Antonio though because she doesn t eel worthy of Nino having come rom a background much like Antonio s Len disparages her intellect and achievements lusting over the distant Nino She is trying to make that leap but can t see how she might do it This is all a little silly when you consider that Nino is actually The Everyman Book of Nonsense Verse from her own neighborhood She s known him since she was a child But hisather moved out of the neighborhood many years ago and became a college professor And now Len eels Nino s somehow out of her leagueThere was no escape No neither Lina nor I would ever become like the sophisticated girl who had waited or Nino after school We both lacked something intangible but Ten Years Beyond Baker Street: fundamental which was obvious in her even if you simply saw herrom a distance and which one possessed or did not because to have that thing it was not enough to learn Latin or Greek or philosophy nor was the money rom groceries or shoes of any use p 84Suffice it to say Nino is available then Len suspects That s the problem I say no ReadThe long interlude on the beach at Ischia reminds me very much of Cesare Pavese s novellas particularly The Beach as ound in The Selected Works One of Nino s sisters is even named Clelia Another work which harrowingly evokes the terrors of youthful sexual awakening is brought to mind by The Story Of A New Name and that s Knut Hamsun s Pan From Lieutenant Thomas Glahn s Papers See my reviews of both booksOn to Volume 3 I m still a bit puzzled about the phenomen that Ferrante s cycle is I don t The Essential Library for New Moms 4-Book Bundle: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child; The Baby Food Bible; Infant Massage; Colic Solved find writing particuralry brilliant I think I didn t mark any single uote here and yet enjoyed the story I thought it was very predictible at times I could see what was coming and mostly hadn t been suprised by the course of events and still kept reading I can t say it was innovative or imaginative yet Ferrante managed to draw me in her world entirely Maybe I m mistaken but as I mentioned in the review of MBF I still haven t spotted in the second volume anything to not maintain that Ferrante is excorcising her past Her writing hereeels too intimate too personal to think about this one only as a The Triangle of Truth: The Surprisingly Simple Secret to Resolving Conflicts Largeand Small fictional story Perhaps her case is similar to other writers including Edward St Aubyn and his Patrick Melrose or My struggle by Karl Ove Knausg rd that I m reading now and this is her way to deal with the demons of the past a necessary step on the way to move on toinally let goI ve returned to Lila and Elena story after over two years and I ind myself still engaged in their story and difficult riendship the relationship that actually eels like challenging than supporting each others I was suprised how easily I entered their lives again and how much I rememberd rom the previous tome Of course some names eluded me but the main protagonists didn t NYCTaxiCabTales.com: Taxi Stories from streets of NYC fade in my memory Like in theirst installment this one bases on choices girls had made already and its aftermaths It s useless to describing the plot The Wrong Side of the Bed for you either buy this story or not either you re involved and concerned theirates or are bored and somewhat dismissive like you know such things still happen so what s the point to write hundreds pages about it I The Alvin Ho Super Collection: Books 1-4 for my part was really engagedrom the کاروان امید first page and thought that strength of the novel lies just in this meticulous description this detailed dissection this ugly at times mundanity and sheer ordinariness of their lives The Story of a New Name is about losing old self and identity and by adopting a new name the husband s nameorging the new one It s about struggling to remain oneself in mostly man s world
