內容簡介 義大利神祕作家斐蘭德以小說那不勒斯四部曲聞名於世，新作《大人的謊言生活》將改編為 Netflix 原創影集，描述主角喬凡娜歷經童年、少女到成人的蛻變歷程。喬凡娜分裂成兩半，在彼此厭惡又恐懼的那不勒斯中，尋找自己的投影。高處的那不勒斯戴著精緻的面具；深處的那不勒斯度縱欲且庸俗。她在兩者間尋找真理，但兩者都無法給她解答，也不讓她逃脫。From the best-selling author of My Brilliant Friend, a powerful new novel set in a divided Naples TO BE ADAPTED INTO AN ORIGINAL TV SERIES BY NETFLIX AND FANDANGO "Ferrante shows again how she is unbeatable."- The Times (UK) "Modern, urgent, truthful." - Lucy Hughes-Hallett, The Telegraph "Elena Ferrante is an expert chronicler of adolescence and its many indignities, as well as its erratic, overwhelming passions." - The Observer Giovanna's pretty face has changed: it's turning into the face of an ugly, spiteful adolescent. But is she seeing things as they really are? Into which mirror must she look to find herself and save herself? She is searching for a new face in two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: the Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and the Naples of the depths, which professes to be a place of excess and vulgarity. She moves between these two cities, disoriented by the fact that, whether high or low, the city seems to offer no answer and no escape. Elena Ferrante is unsurpassed in her ability to draw readers into her books from the very first page and she proves this again with The Lying Life of Adults, pulling us into what the Italian trade magazine Il libraio described as 'not a mere story but an entire world.' The millions of readers who found themselves addicted to My Brilliant Friend and the Neapolitan quartet will find that this new novel has the same addictive, do-not-disturb-I'm-reading qualities.
