    Fascinating indeed! And I can see how hard the adaptation technique might be; in the hands of lesser writers, it would probably simply come across as the characters being vague or undefined and hence poorly written.

    I also found it interesting that the Adelle Waldman essay uses Elena Ferrante as an example in contrasting male and female perspectives. Ursula Le Guin has a different take on the Ferrante novels, is suspicious of Ferrante’s secrecy, and suggests she wouldn’t be surprised if Ferrante turns out to be a man.
