Join Bhavana on Zoom on Wednesday, October 13th at 5pm (CST) for a discussion on Le pays des autres (In the Country of Others) by Leïla Slimani.

 

ABOUT LE PAYS DES AUTRES

‘Le Pays des autres’ is about a woman in an interracial marriage whose fierce desire for autonomy parallels her adopted country’s fight for independence. Mathilde, a spirited young Frenchwoman, falls in love with Amine, a handsome Moroccan soldier in the French army during World War II. After the war, the couple settles in Morocco.

In her third novel — after “Adèle” and “The Perfect Nanny,” which won France’s Prix Goncourt in 2016 — Leïla Slimani draws on her own family’s inspiring story for the first volume in a planned trilogy about race, resilience, and women’s empowerment. This classic war fiction depicts the struggle for identity and territory amid violence, courage and sacrifice, while shifting the spotlight away from men and their fragilities.

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Leila Slimani is the bestselling author of The Perfect Nanny, one of The New York Times Book Review‘s 10 Best Books of the Year, for which she became the first Moroccan woman to win France’s most prestigious literary prize, the Goncourt.
