Livraria Lello sugere...
Boundless now presents a new format. This time, the reading suggestions for the month are from our Graphic Designer, Nana Marvila. Her favourite literary genres are Romance, Graphic Novels and Poetry! She likes to read in many places, but it is on public transport and in gardens that she loses herself in reading. For Nana, a coffee is the perfect company to enjoy these two reading suggestions:

My Brilliant Friend, Elena Ferrante

My Brilliant Friend is the story of a meeting between two children from a working-class neighbourhood on the outskirts of Naples and their teenage friendship.
Elena meets her friend in first class. They both come from poor families. Elena's father works as a doorman at the town hall, Lila Cerullo's is a shoemaker.
Lila is fierce, sagacious, courageous in her words and actions. She has a ready answer for everything and acts with a determination that the calm and studious Elena envies.
When the clumsy Lila becomes a teenager who fascinates the boys in the neighborhood, Elena continues to look to her for inspiration. Their paths diverge when, unlike Lila, Elena continues her high school studies and Lila has to fight for herself and her family in the neighborhood where she lives. But their friendship continues. My Brilliant Friend has the pace of a great popular narrative, dense, fast and disconcerting, light and profound, showing family and romantic conflicts in a succession of episodes that readers wish would never end.

Two Friends and the Yellow Dress, Hugo Vanderding

In response to the growing challenges of disinformation, identified by the World Economic Forum as the greatest global threat in the next two years, the Fundação Livraria Lello launched a challenge to the author Hugo Van Der Ding. Together, we created a survival manual, translated into the book "Two Friends and the Yellow Dress". Through humorous language, the work is also an educational tool that addresses the contemporary challenges of misinformation, enabling readers to navigate with confidence in an era of great uncertainty.
