Storia del nuovo cognome characters ´ 7 Ella me demostró ue yo no había ganado nada simplemente porue en este mundo nuestro no había nada ue ganary lo ue de verdad valía la pena era verse de vez en cuando para ue el sonido enlouecido de nuestras mentes fuera rebotando de la una a la otra sin pararElla es una mujer hermosa alocada y su nombre es Lila Es la misma niña ue conocimos en La amiga estupenda el primer tomo de esta espléndida trilogía y ahora recién cumplidos lo. Elena Ferrante is an absolute marvel This was utterly ravishing How does she do it Structurally her novels could hardly be conservative her subject matter the fraught friendship of two women has been done to death And yet you re constantly left with the feeling that no one has ever done what she does before Or at least no one has done it with such searing insight and freshness Only a handful of writers can undress and get to the heart of women as lucidly and thrillingly as Ferrante The first hundred pages especially were uite simply a dazzling display of a writer removing all the paint and powder from a woman s face mask and showing us the naked truths beneath Ferrante is like a kind of dream psychoanalysis She dispels all the fog unravels all the knots of a woman s deepest feeling and elucidates in simple language the fount the hidden motive She always knows the secret as to why her women are doing what they do She once said in an interview that her ambition was to make the facts of ordinary life gripping She achieves this by elucidating the emotionalmotivational source of many of these facts She also has this extraordinary talent for easing into her narrative and explaining difficult subjects without sacrificing a single beat of the fabulous driving momentum of her story There are no divergences in this novel every line is intrinsic to understanding Elena and Lila s struggles to achieve identity and autonomy For example the domestic violence in this novel is all the powerfully disturbing for the lack of emphasis she gives it as if it s no extraordinary than a trip to the shops It makes the domestic violence in for example A Girl Is a Half formed Thing seem written up and theatrical In fact the ease with which she feeds hugely complex and pivotal experience into her narrative makes most other contemporary novelists seem a bit written up and theatrical There s a fleet footed breeziness to Ferrante s storytelling which is uite simply bewitching in its ease of assurance I put off reading this for ages because for some reason I thought it might be a disappointment after My Brilliant Friend On the contrary it s even better

What s your ugly placeWe all have one We all have a place we uite deliberately do not go to That we are aware is there but have developed systems and defensive walls and jokes and denials in order to keep it out of the light of day It s the place you can t help but end up sometimes when something particularly embarrassing happens to you something tragic an epiphany about yourself that you didn t particularly want occurs to you It s the place where you were the person you never ever wanted to be lives and the memories of when that person came out that one time that you never want to think about againThat deep down dark pit of your stomach feeling that s welling up and over as that image comes to your brain That s it That s the visceral level of vulnerability insecurity ugliness and pain that I saw there And there is where you need to be to understand everything I m about to tell youBecause that place is where this novel goes This thing hit me where I live Which means as you can probably tell already that reading Story of a New Name is not something I would recommend for anyone in a fragile emotional state It isn t for anyone who is still too close to being an insecure bookish not uite teenager any with major self esteem issues Even a few years ago I think reading this might have sent me into a depressive melodramatic spiral like when I saw Melancholia which had to have been the literal worst thing I could have chosen to see while writing my thesis in a foreign country at a school full of people smarter than me I saw it three times and lost a weekend before I could see straight againWhich is what may happen with Elena Ferrante Which is totally insane when you read these books objectively Or at least I think it would be I have no way of really telling right now Her style is for the most part this totally bare bald faced thing that just tells you exactly what is happening to her characters in their mundane perfectly ordinary 1960s poor Italian lives The engine driving the drama that the things that keep happening keep right on damn happening to them and the second volume is no better Ferrante is as merciless as time marching on without a thought for her characters and their development who really could use some time in this stage of their personal development or other Ferrante like the harsh Naples neighborhood she raises her characters in doesn t allow herself to give a damn I can absolutely guarantee you whatever you sign up for you should sign up for some shit happens and very little mercy granted because that s how it goes with Ferrante Sometimes I think that the main narrator s school and career arc is the mercy bone she threw us just to keep us from looking awayThe second volume of this series focuses on the girls late adolescence and post adolescence the years that for most of us would be covered by late high school college and your first post college job As with the first novel the pages of the novel are covered over with a powerful atmosphere that burns right through the pages until you re sitting right with Lila and Elena with sand in your outdated bathing suit on the beach at Ischia standing on a street corner watching a too flashy sports car go by catching a glimpse of a movie star that looks like your friend with Elena in a cramped corner of a bedroom like a modern Italian Fanny Price angrily swatting at mosuitoes and trying to keep still in the suffocating heat The courtyards of broken glass wailing from the windows and women uncommented upon wearing bruises to work the next day is as sickeningly evoked as ever One of the fascinating atmospheric elements that Ferrante added demonstrated the stage of development where you become aware that you are not the center of the universe in a variety of ways in this case for characters living in poverty and powerlessness most of them borne in forcibly upon you whether you like it or not Ferrante starts to introduce the gradual intrusion of politics and political identity tellingly it mostly shows in one tribal identity one way for the kids to divide themselves mostly in increased accusations of Fascist pig and Red communist thrown around in place of remarks on one s face and person and one kid going to one meeting and one going to another Elena also encounters this world but again not in itself but as a piece of currency in the game of the class system another piece of another kind of tribal mask that she s trying hard to don Professor Airota and his daughter had for example affectionate skirmishes on political subjects that I had heard about from Pasuale from Nino but whose substance I knew almost nothing about Arguments like you ve been trapped by inter class collaboration you call it a trap I call it mediation mediation in which the Christian Democrats always and only win you re not reforming a thing in our place what would you do revolution revolution and revolution revolution is taking Italy out of the middle ages Like that a swift back and forth a polemical exercise that they both obviously enjoyed What I had never had and I now knew would always lack What was it I wasn t able to say precisely the training perhaps to feel that the uestions of the world were deeply connected to me the capacity to feel them as crucial and not purely as information to display at an exam in view of a good grade a mental conformation that didn t reduce everything to my own individual battle to the effort to be successful That one hit me hard This is is a really tough book on the class system and the unseen building damage that it does to the psyche The sort of psychology on display here is the sort of thing I learned in my urban teacher training program or learned first hand when faced with some of my students Elena spends a great deal of the back half of this book anxiously trying to decode and adopt the unwritten rules of being middle class the words the clothes what I was trained to call the cultural knapsack that middle class kids often get seemingly by osmosis Ferrante shows the utter human waste that happens as a result invisible waste as far as we re concerned the brilliant minds that never get a chance to take over the world the fruit seller who is unexpectedly good at math the entrepreneurial ideas crushed by self confidence issues and family suabbles It s much harder to look at than any of the wasted landscapes or shabby apartments that she describesAnd watching Elena sew her middle class mask onto her face tighter and tighter laboring at it for years and watching the ugly ugly road that it takes to get there of which Ferrante only tells you the barest part but it isn t hard to guess it well did anyone else watch Battlestar Galatica Do you remember that time that Baltar was in jail after fucking up yet again and he talks to Lee I think finally opening up to him a little bit about where he s from Fuck I wish I could find it But while he s talking to him hanging his head in the darkness with his hair covering his face he slowly lets his cultured British accent morph into a thick gravelly hick voice that is clearly his natural tone He makes it as scary as possible throwing it at aristocratic Lee like a weapon moving to the bars with red eyes like he s morphing himself into the monster he believes himself to be It s like that but mannered expressed in ladylike spare lines like this I was so glad that no one in that nice little family had asked me as happened freuently where I came from what my father did and my mother I was I I I It makes sense why later in the novel there s a passage about how so many characters are confused when Lila wants to go take a job in the center of the city She s a veritable ueen in the old neighborhood and can lord it over anyone there lend them money show them up in clothes people are now afraid to cross her Why would she want to go to the nicer part of town where her illusions will be shattered Why would she want to take that away that illusion from herselfThis class angle had a lot to do with the ugly place I was telling you about before which is the deep seeded insecurity that runs throughout this entire book But while class and place and atmosphere are the bedrock reasons the insecurity I m talking about here has to do with friendship This series is after all about a friendship No matter what other powerful stuff buttresses it under the surface that provided it with its foundation we re far enough along into the lives of these girls that the friendship has now taken on a life of its own We ve reached the point as happens in a lot of long running friendships where the thing has become overripe it s become something rotten and possibly poisonous something that probably should have been dumped overboard a long time ago But you re still at the place where you can t uite let it goEspecially when it s a powerful relationship with someone as charismatic as Lila someone you looked up to someone you put on a pedestal and set up as a sort of personal musedeitydevil It s a fascinating minute examination of a part of the conseuences of an expanding consciousness of the world namely that you realize that you your friend and your courtyard are no longer the center of the universe Elena is starting to become aware in fits and starts of the fact that Lila has a personality and limits just like she does She starts to say things like this is what she does She starts to express annoyance and there s even a few times where she pathetically tries to keep Lila out In the past there had been Lila a continuous happy detour into surprising lands Now everything I was I wanted to get from myself I was almost nineteen I would never again depend on someone and I would never again miss someone And even a whole chapter where she experiments writing about her own life without referencing Lila at all something neat clean undisturbed And something that lasts two pages before Lila returns How easy it is to tell the story of myself without Lila time uiets down and the important facts slide along the thread of the years like suitcases on a conveyor belt at an airport you pick them up and put them on a page and it s doneIt s complicated to recount what happened to her in those years The belt slows down accelerates swerves abruptly goes off the tracks The suitcases fall off fly open her things end up among mine to accommodate them I am compelled to return to the narrative concerning me and that had come to be unobstructed and expand phrases that now sound too concise My life forces me to imagine what hers would have been if what happened to me had happened to her what use she would have made of my luck And her life continuously appears in mine in the words that I ve uttered in which there s often an echo of hers in a particular gesture that is an adaptation of a gesture of hers in may less which is such because of her in my which is yielding to the force of her less She can t leave her behind There s a lot of reasons why but at the heart of it is another class battle of sorts to do with Elena s identification as an intellectual and a discussion of different kinds of intelligence and which one is better Lila s is the kind that poets romanticize people are magnetically drawn to that succeeds when it shouldn t but also continues to push and push until it inevitably breaks something Is it possible that you must always do harm Lila When will you stop When will your energy diminish will you be distracted when will you finally collapse like a sleepy sentinel When will you grow wide and sit at the cash register in the new neighborhood with your stomach swelling and make Pinuccia and aunt and me me me leave to go my own way runs the imagined inner monologue of one of the characters While Elena s well Elena s is kind that gets you through high school and college and into a steady job and the plaudits of those around you It s the sort of self punishing struggle that most intellectuals put themselves through at some point and probably most of their lives if they identify as or are put into the role of a smart kid early enough You were that kid right A lot of us were But then you met that other kid right The one who was smarter than you If you re me you met a whole group of them in which you were the least intelligent person If you re lucky you felt challenged you felt yourself blossom If you weren t you felt inadeuate like your identity had melted away and you never uite recovered If you re super unlucky like Elena you get the triple double horrible punch of feeling elatedexhilaratedproudbetrayedinsecureunhappyangrysad every time you see this person wasting themselves away If you ve never had that sort of deep friendship the kind that s gone wrong and back around the corner again or even if it never uite come back again the sort that s steered your life I don t know how to explain it to you The closest I can come is that Cathy Heathcliff thing it s that thing where Cathy tells people that Heathcliff is a part of her and that really sucks and it s no pleasure to her most of the time but there he is and there s really no way to tear him out again and you re going to have to live with the goddamn thing because if you don t you ll pull out such a big piece of you that what you consider your Self will effectively dieShe burns it up again at the end though even after everything we see them go through That end man I can t leave without talking about it Elena goes to see Lila to share some important happy news with her news that she is convinced will change things will ignite something good in her again And she does but then Lila s reaction what she sees her do in response And what happens to her what she thinks she realizes It was a gut punch that I can only describe by going back to Baltar again Remember in the last episoe he s with Six and they re trying to figure out how they re going to get by on the new planet and he says in the most broken little voice you ve ever heard like he absolutely can t believe he s bringing it up You know I know about farming If you were the person who like me was utterly destroyed by that moment then you need to read this book If you were any of the people described above or if you have that ugly place you need to read this book If you re looking to be transported if you re looking for something that can consume you for days you need to read this book So I guess really I would say that if you re alive in any way I m sure that there s a reason that you should probably read this bookInstant personal classic instant all time favorites list will be re reading this once a decade for the rest of my life Why She was explaining to me that I had won nothing that in the world there is nothing to win that her life was full of varied and foolish adventures as much as mine and that time simply slipped away without any meaning and it was good just to see each other every so often to hear the mad sound of one brain echo in the mad sound of the brain of the other That s whyThis review originally appeared on my blog at
