Joining us on this Between the Lines episode is Dr Jacqueline Phillips Owen. We discuss The Days of Abandonment by Elena Ferrante.

This book is the gripping story of a woman's descent into devastating emptiness after being abandoned by her husband with two young children to care for. When she finds herself literally trapped within the four walls of their high-rise apartment, she is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal.
