    1. The Ferrante title is the one I’m most looking forward to. I was thinking of giving a copy of My Brilliant Friend to a dear friend – we grew up together and every time I see that title I think of her. But, not having read it yet, I’m worried about it being appropriate. So often novels about female friendships end in betrayal, etc.
