Description
"One of the most important books of the year." --NPR's Weekend Edition "Extraordinary." -- The New Yorker "The first 'hot' novel of 2018." -- The Washington Post "You won't move until you reach the last page." -- People Named One of 2018's Most Anticipated Books by NPR's Weekend Edition, Real Simple, The Millions, The Guardian, Bustle, and Book Riot She has the keys to their apartment. She knows everything. She has embedded herself so deeply in their lives that it now seems impossible to remove her. When Myriam, a French-Moroccan lawyer, decides to return to work after having children, she and her husband look for the perfect nanny for their two young children. They never dreamed they would find Louise: a quiet, polite, devoted woman who sings to the children, cleans the family's chic apartment in Paris's upscale tenth arrondissement, stays late without complaint, and hosts enviable kiddie parties. But as the couple and the nanny become more dependent on one another, jealousy, resentment, and suspicions mount, shattering the idyllic tableau. Building tension with every page, The Perfect Nanny is a compulsive, riveting, bravely observed exploration of power, class, race, domesticity, and motherhood--and the American debut of an immensely talented writer. The #1 international bestseller and winner of France's most prestigious literary prize, the Goncourt
