Born in Saviano, near Naples, he has worked for several newspapers and satirical magazines, including L'Unità, Il Manifesto, Tango, and Cuore, usually about episodes of his life as a high school teacher. He also works as screenwriter.

The movies La scuola (by Daniele Luchetti) and Denti (by Gabriele Salvatores) are based on his books.

His most appreciated book is Via Gemito, which won the Premio Strega in 2001. It was suggested in 2006 that the mysterious writer Elena Ferrante, author of L'amore molesto and I giorni dell'abbandono, is Starnone himself.

Starnone is married to Anita Raja, the literary translator who was unmasked as famed author Elena Ferrante in a report by the Italian investigative journalist Claudio Gatti in 2016.
