We have full spoilers for the October 2020 Boxwalla Book box! October 1st is the last day to subscribe.

Each October Boxwalla Book box includes:

 

This October we showcase two wonderful writers: Elena Ferrante (Italy)Zakes Mda (South Africa), along with a delightful bookish gift from Ideal Bookshelf. Each October Book Box will contain: 

  • Elena Ferrante”s latest, gripping novel The Lying Life of Adults ($26.00)
  • Zakes Mda’s acclaimed, moving novel The Madonna of Excelsior ($18)
  • book pin inspired by Toni Morisson’s incredible Beloved by Ideal Bookshelf  ($11)

Cost: $29.95;
Retail Value : $55

The first book in the October Book Box is Elena Ferrante’s much awaited newest release, The Lying Life of Adults.  It’s a gripping book that follows Giovanna, as she grapples with her father’s words about her resemblance to her estranged Aunt Vittoria. Giovanna searches for her reflection in two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity. She moves from one to the other in search of the truth, but neither city seems to offer answers or escape.

The second book is Zakes Mda’s The Madonna of Excelsior, a beautiful book that encompasses the apartheid era when the Immortality Act was passed, as well as the post-apartheid period. Niki, the fallen madonna, transgresses boundaries for the sake of love; her choices have repercussions in the lives of her black son and mixed-race daughter, who come of age in post-apartheid South Africa, where freedom prompts them to reexamine their country’s troubled history..By turns earthy, witty, and tragic, The Madonna of Excelsior is a brilliant depiction of life in South Africa and of the dramatic changes between the 1970s and the present.

Also included in the October Book Box is this adorable literary themed pin from Ideal Bookshelf created by the talented Jane Mount. This beautiful little pin is inspired by Toni Morrison’s Beloved. This pin is based on an original drawing by Jane Mount, who says: “With the Book Pins, I’m trying to capture the essence of a book in less than an inch square.” This picture is of Sethe from Toni Morrison’s Beloved.  So you can wear a piece of great literature on your sleeve.

Ferrante’s books have been made into a hbo series so It’s good to see the latest novel in a sub. Look forward to it.
