Elena Ferrante returns to the tale at the centre of the novel she considers to be a turning point in her development as a writer: The Lost Daughter. But this time the story takes the form of a children's fable told from the point of view of the lost (stolen!) doll, Celina. Celina is having a terrible night, one full of jealousy for the new kitten, Minù, feelings of abandonment and sadness, misadventures at the hands of the beach attendant, and dark dreams. But she will be happily found by Mati, her child, once the sun rises.

Accompanied by the oneiric and stirring illustrations of Mara Cerri, The Beach at Night is a story for all of Ferrante's many ardent fans.
