Elena Ferrante is one of the most mysterious writers alive. Best known for her Neapolitan Trilogy which includes My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, and Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, she has remained elusive to both her fans and to the press. Her work, however, reveals a penetrating and articulate vision of the way people interact. There is no shortage of rumors as to the veracity of her identity—some of conspiracy theories have even linked her to other popular male Italian authors.
Founded in 1995 in New York City and named for the seven authors who committed to a home with a fiercely independent spirit, Seven Stories Press publishes works of the imagination and political titles by voices of conscience. While most widely known for its books on politics, human rights, and social and economic justice, Seven Stories continues to champion literature, with a list encompassing both innovative debut novels and National Book Award–winning poetry collections, as well as prose and poetry translations from the French, Spanish, German, Swedish, Italian, Greek, Polish, Korean, Vietnamese, Russian, and Arabic.
