Editorial Reviews

"Ferrante delivers a brutally frank tale about the dangerous intersection of rage and desire."

– Booklist

"With quick-paced mystery guiding the story, Delia explores her relationship with her mother, unraveling memories and secrets repressed since childhood and coming to terms with an upbringing filled with jealousy and violence...Troubling Love is vivid and powerful."

– Library Journal

"A tour de force, Troubling Love is a harrowing tour of a feminine psyche under siege. Together with The Days of Abandonment, it confirms Ferrante's reputation as one of Italy's best contemporary novelists."

– Seattle Times
