In the Margins

For fans of Ferrante, or simply, of feminism, In the Margins is a slim series of lectures on reading and writing, accompanied by an essay on Dante. Oracle of oracles, Ferrante discusses process and inspirations, embarking on great, arcing tangents about other writers of note, and inviting devoted readers into her mind for a moment. She writes of writing as a transcendental act, as a becoming, as a flow of thoughts hastily and imperfectly captured. The thoughts she presents on her own novels made me want to immediately read them again, alongside the works that, in part, inspired them. Recommended by Mary
