Sharing Elena Ferrante’s weekly column. I enjoy reading them, haven’t read any of her books though – no particular reason, other than lack of time and interest too. But some day I shall. Several of my friends, women, have read her novels. But not my male friends read non-fiction or nothing at all. Needless to add: they haven’t read my stories, which is probably a good thing – for a couple of the tales present a fictionalised version of their lives.
