The series has been characterized as a bildungsroman, or coming-of-age story.[1] In an interview for the Harper`s Magazine, Elena Ferrante stated that she considers the four books to be "a single novel", published serially for reasons of length and duration.[2]. The series has sold over 10 millions copies in 40 countries. [3] The series follows the lives of two perceptive and intelligent girls, Elena (sometimes called “Lenù”) Greco and Raffaella (“Lila”) Cerullo, from childhood to adulthood and old age, as they try to create lives for themselves amidst the violent and stultifying culture of their home – a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples, Italy.[4] The novels are narrated by Elena Greco. The series was adapted into a play by April De Angelis that opened at the Rose Theatre, Kingston in March 2017.[5] The series is also being adapted into a 32-part television series titled The Neapolitan Novels.[6] https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Neapolitan_Novels
