5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Journey ever!, 29 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This one of the very best journeys I have ever been on. Elena Ferante's writing is incredibly incisive and perceptive about the vicissitudes and profound intimacies of female friendships, probably of all close and eternal friendships. She writes against the backdrop of a vividly alive Naples with all its oppressive loyalties and betrayals. The biggest joy of this novel was to discover that it's the first of a trilogy all of which I recommend with unreserved and dynamic pleasure!

This review is from: The Food of Spain (Hardcover)
This is no doubt THE cookery book of the year! Claudia Roden is probably the most interesting food writer and the recipes she brings into one's own kitchen are absolute favorites. Though I love all her cookery books, I cannot stop cooking from this one at the moment and my family are really happy about it too!

This is a beautifully written book of compelling short stories. Jhumpa Lahiri is an extraordinary writer who's short stories in particular take one into worlds that resonate across cultures. I love giving this book as a present and almost wish I could start reading it as if I had never read it before although rereading it is a great pleasure too.
