In the Margins is an enjoyable collection of essays on the pleasures of reading and writing, on a life lived on paper, and on the joys of literary adventure. The origin story of a prolific literary figure, these essays outline Elena Ferrante’s development as both a reader and writer and some of her major influences. Almost like a behind the scenes tour of her work.— Russell, New York
