In French Moroccan Leïla Slimani’s books, the psychological development of the characters is what captures the reader. Lullaby explores the interactions of a small upper middle-class family. What power struggles take place within the walls of this Parisian apartment? What secrets are buried in the nanny’s past? And how do the children end up dead?
Leïla Slimani’s conversation with editor of Vinduet, Maria Horvei, took place on March 27, 2019.
