    The Story of a New Name, the second book of the Neapolitan Quartet, picks up the story where My Brilliant Friend left off.


    Lila has recently married and made her entree into the family business; Elena, meanwhile, continues her studies and her exploration of the world beyond the neighbourhood that she so often finds stifling. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all friendship: these are signs under which both women live out this phase in their stories. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila, and the pressure to excel is at times too much for Elena. Yet the two young women share a complex and evolving bond that is central to their emotional lives and is a source of strength in the face of life's challenges.



    In the Neapolitan Quartet, Elena Ferrante gives readers a poignant and universal story about friendship and belonging.
