I was absolutely fascinated by the historical background to the books and TV series. I had missed it started with the end of World War 2. Quite an eye opener.
Danielle Oteri’s “Elena Ferrante’s Tour of Italy” was so insightful and so informative. She was able to put into “context” the setting and characters in those famous and fabulous books. She spoke to the world they lived in and especially about Naples, Italy.
I can’t wait to read them again knowing what I learned from Danielle!
For readers who want to understand the context of My Brilliant Friend and learn mind blowing details about history, literature and Naples, this is the best class I can imagine.
