Yes, that Elena Ferrante! Author of the Neopolitan novels quartet will appear in the weekend edition of the Guardian UK newspaper. Ferrante writes under a pseudonym and guards her privacy diligently.
Her column will be translated by her current translator, Ann Goldstein. 

Read Ferrante's first column here. 

Guardian Weekend editor Melissa Denes had this to say, “I’m thrilled to be working with Elena Ferrante on her first newspaper column – a new adventure for her and for Guardian Weekend magazine. Every week, she will be writing a personal piece, covering subjects from sex to ageing to the things that make her laugh. We can’t wait to see where she will take us."
