The number-one bestseller and winner of the Prix Goncourt - a compulsive, riveting and bravely observed exploration of power, class, race, domesticity and motherhood.
"It's an explosive cocktail, and Leïla Slimani's deft, often agonising novel shakes it up with a precision that takes your breath away. The acid, throwaway beauty of so many of Slimani's descriptions and phrases [means] that you are taken deep into a fragile, damaged yet somehow rationally irrational psyche. I closed this book feeling very shaken but also with a sense that I'd just had an experience that almost no other art form could have given me" (Julie Myerson Observer Book of the Day)
"Terrifying and haunting, Lullaby is every parent's worst nightmare. You won't read a smarter, more chilling book this year. It's wonderful.' (Mel McGrath, author of Give Me The Child)
"This book is insanely good." (Kate Hamer)
