In an interview for the Harper's Magazine, Elena Ferrante stated that she considers the four books to be ""a single novel", published serially for reasons of length and duration. The series follows the lives of two perceptive and intelligent girls, Elena (sometimes called “Lenù”) Greco and Raffaella (“Lila”) Cerullo, from childhood to adulthood as they try to create lives for themselves amidst the violent and stultifying culture of their home– a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples, Italy. The novels are narrated by Elena Greco. It has been reported that a 32-part television series ‘’The Neapolitan Novels’’ is in the works and will be co-produced by the Italian producer Wildside for Fandango Productions, with screenwriting led by the writer Francesco Piccolo.
