· The novel ·
A classmate - very different in social background, temperament and natural gifts – may mark the life of a young girl if a feeling of true friendship grows between the two, teaching both of them to overcome their differences, to intuit impulses still unexpressed in soul of the other. The separation, sudden and painful, which is forced upon them at the end of the school year, catches in this way two now different little girls, who will carry with them for life the fruits of such an important encounter. In My only friend (Bollati Boringhieri, 2013) written in a simple and profound style, without sentimentality but with great ability to capture the thoughts and impulses of children at a suburban school, to place the reader within the grey and rainy landscape of the mountain village, and to describe with loving attention the clarifying and educative role in the fullest sense of the teacher, Eliana Bouchard reveals an excellent narrative capacity that confirms the success of her first novel, Louise , even though it is so different in both theme and historical setting.
