Leïla Slimani's mild manner hides a biting style and impressive powers of perception that allow her to plumb the depths of human psychology. In “Lullaby”, her superior firepower and close attention to detail lend the text a striking realism.

Born to a Franco-Algerian mother and a Moroccan father, Leïla Slimani worked as a journalist before devoting herself to writing. She first came to public attention with her debut novel, “In the Garden of the Ogre”, and in 2016 received the Goncourt Prize for her second book, “Lullaby”. As a commited writer, she publicly defends causes that are dear to her heart like the place of women in societies, religious tolerance and the status of the francophonie. On November 2017, she has been appointed Representative of Francophone Affairs by the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron.
