Hi all,

After the excitement of the World Cup, how about reading a masterpiece from Italy's most famous authors,who until a few years back was relatively unknown outside of Italy.

Set in Naples, 'My Brilliant Friend' is set in Naples and explores the lifetime friendship of Elena and Lila and how their lives and friendship has changed over the years.

It promises to be a great summer read!

Looking forward
