The Beach at Night



ON SALE: November 1st 2016

Publisher: Europa Editions, Incorporated


A “beautifully written” dark fable from a doll’s point of view–by theNew York Times-bestselling author ofThe Lost Daughter and the Neapolitan Novels (The Washington Post).

One ofNPR‘s Best Books of the Year.

Readers of Elena Ferrante’sThe Lost Daughter may recall the little doll–lost or stolen–around which that novel revolves. Here, Ferrante retells the tale from the doll’s perspective.

Celina is having a terrible night, one full of jealousy for the new kitten, Minù; feelings of abandonment and sadness; misadventures at the hands of the beach attendant; and dark dreams. But she will be happily found by Mati, her child, once the sun rises . . .

“Everyone should read anything with Ferrante’s name on it.” —The Boston Globe
