In four new essays, collected here in In the Margins, Elena Ferrante writes about her influences, her struggles and her formation as both a reader and a writer.

Ferrante describes the perils of ‘bad language’ and suggests ways in which it has long excluded women’s truth, and she brilliantly discourses on the work of Emily Dickinson, Gertrude Stein, Ingeborg Bachmann and many others. This collection of candid essays explores adventures in literature, both in and out of the margins.
