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
