About this Item
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, MinÃ¹; 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
