The Story of the Lost Child
480 pages; Europa Editions
Why We Love It: Is there such a thing as literary crack? The Neapolitan novels were it for us, as we followed the lives of two friends, Elena and Raffaella, from childhood to adulthood in the 1970s.

The Sequel: We know the Neapolitan novels were written as a four-part series and The Story of the Lost Child is the last book in the series. But, please, please, please can we have another?
