Classic stories and reportage set in Naples in the 1940s and 50s that inspired Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Novels

Her stories and reportage, collected in this volume, form a powerful portrait of ordinary lives, both high and low, family dramas, love affairs, and struggles to pay the rent, set against the crumbling courtyards of the city itself, and the dramatic landscape of Naples Bay.
