Elena Ferrante’s next novel, The Lying Life of Adults, has been out in Italy for a few months now.

It won’t, however, reach the United States until June 9, so the Washington Post turned to Mary Gray — a freelance journalist, university lecturer, and contributing magazine editor living in Italy — to share her reaction as well as Italians’.

Unsurprisingly, the book is flying off shelves, Gray reports, and in her opinion, readers who loved Ferrante’s Neapolitan quartet of novels will enjoy this latest offering.

She shares what she promises are spoiler-free reactions to The Lying Life of Adults, as well as a peek into how Italians see its world-famous author, in the Post.
