Book description
Following her mother's untimely and mysterious death, Delia embarks on a voyage of discovery through the streets of her native Naples, searching for the truth about her family. A series of mysterious telephone calls leads to a compelling and disturbing revelation about her mother's final days. A stylish work of fiction set in a beguiling but often hostile Naples, whose chaotic, suffocating streets become one of the book's central motifs.

"Troubling Love is a psychological mystery ... Ferrante is fascinated by the moments when a personality – like a wire stretched too far from its power source – shorts and corrodes." (David Lipsky, The New York Times)

"A tour de force, Troubling Love is a harrowing tour of a feminine psyche under siege. Together with The Days of Abandonment, it confirms Ferrante's reputation as one of Italy's best contemporary novelists." (Seattle Times)

"With quick-paced mystery guiding the story, Delia explores her relationship with her mother, unraveling memories and secrets repressed since childhood and coming to terms with an upbringing filled with jealousy and violence ... Troubling Love is vivid and powerful." (Library Journal)

"Ferrante's polished language belies the rawness of her imagery." (The New Yorker)

"Ferrante delivers a brutally frank tale about the dangerous intersection of rage and desire." (Booklist)
