Comfort and Joy: This Show is the Reason this Season.
Mom, this week was HARD. I’m getting precious little sleep around these parts, but then.... you too, huh?
Thank you, sweet Jesus, that this show came out. It’s on HBO, like, now.
Have you read the Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante? “My Brilliant Friend” is the name of the first book and, now, the series based on the books (4 total). And... if you can’t tell from the trailer, it’s not going to have you rolling in your seat, but it’s beautiful and heart-breaking... the story of a soul-mate type of friendship.
I’ve only read Book 1... but my sisters (and the whole smart literary universe) have read all four and loved them. I better get crackin before Season 2!
Hope your weekend includes some rest. And -for real- this show.
