A woman goes home to Naples after her mother’s mysterious death in a “tour de force” (Seattle Times) by the New York Times bestselling author of My Brilliant Friend.

Following her mother’s untimely and unexplained drowning, which was preceded by a series of strange phone calls, forty-five-year-old Delia leaves Rome and embarks on a voyage of discovery through the beguiling yet often hostile streets of her native Naples. She is searching for the truth about her family and the men in her mother’s life, past and present, including an abusive husband.

What Delia discovers will be more unsettling than she imagines, but will also reveal truths about herself, in this psychological mystery marked by “tactile, beautifully restrained prose” (Publishers Weekly) about mothers and daughters and the complicated knot of lies and emotions that binds them.

Elena Ferrante, author of The Days of Abandonment, Troubling Love, and My Brilliant Friend, among others, is one of Italy’s most important and acclaimed contemporary writers. She was named one of the 100 Most Influential People of 2016 by Time.

Hillary Huber is one of the most successful voice talents in Los Angeles. Recent books read for Blackstone Audio include Him, Her, Him Again, the End of Him by Patricia Marx, A Field of Darkness by Cornelia Read, and A Map of Glass by Jane Urquhart.

Ann Goldstein is the former senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Reviews

“Ferrante’s polished language belies the rawness of her imagery.”

“In tactile, beautifully restrained prose…Ferrante has forcefully delineated how the complicity in violence against women perpetuates a brutal cycle of repetition and silence.”

“With the quick-paced mystery guiding the story, Delia explores her relationship with her mother, unraveling memories and secrets repressed since childhood and coming to terms with an upbringing filled with jealousy and violence. As the title indicates, Ferrante’s vivid and powerful descriptions can be somewhat troubling at times, leaving the reader with a memorable sense of unease.”

“Pseudonymous Italian novelist Ferrante delivers a brutally frank tale about the dangerous intersection of rage and desire.”
