Inspired by one of Elena Ferrante’s earlier novels, The Lost Daughter, this is a bewitching fable for girls and boys, but also for Elena Ferrante fans of all ages. Accompanied by full-colour illustrations by Mara Cerri, The Beach At Night is a beautiful picture book narrated by a doll named Celina.

Mati is a little girl so taken by her new kitten that she forgets about her doll and leaves her on the beach. Celina endures a terrifying night, only saved by the arrival of sunrise, when her beloved Mati returns to find her.

Elena Ferrante was born in Naples. She is the author of seven novels: The Days of Abandonment, Troubling Love, The Lost Daughter, the quartet of Neapolitan novels: My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, and The Story of the Lost Child, as well as Frantumaglia, a selection of interviews, letters and occasional writings. She is one of Italy's most acclaimed authors.

Ann Goldstein has translated all of Elena Ferrante’s work. She is an editor at the New Yorker and a recipient of the PEN Renato Poggioli Translation Prize.
