Our Brilliant Friend: Discussing Elena Ferrante

  • HotDocs Ted Rogers Cinema 506 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON, M5S 1Y3 Canada (map)

Flying Books is delighted to co-host the launch of Frantumaglia, by Elena Ferrante, author of the internationally bestselling, zeitgeist-forming Neapolitan Quartet at HotDocs Ted Rogers Cinema in Toronto. Ferrante's brilliant translator, New Yorker editor Ann Goldstein, will discuss Ferrante and her body of work with novelist and Globe and Mail columnist Elizabeth Renzetti.

Frantumaglia: A Writer’s Journey is a collection of Ferrante’s non-fiction writing. Renzetti and Goldstein will discuss what makes the Italian author’s work so lucid and impossible to put down, as well as what it’s like to work with an anonymous author, and much more. You’ll never get closer to meeting Ferrante than through these two outstanding women.
