MAC'S BACKS FEMME BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES THE DAYS OF ABANDONMENT BY ELENA FERRANTE
A national bestseller for almost an entire year, The Days of Abandonment shocked and captivated its Italian public when first published. It is the gripping story of a woman's descent into devastating emptiness after being abandoned by her husband with two young children to care for. When she finds herself literally trapped within the four walls of their high-rise apartment, she is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal.
"A masterpiece...The magic of Days of Abandonment remains the fierce intelligence of its narrator."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"The writer is immensely self-aware and her frankness is stunning."
--The New York Times
