This month we will be reading:

In the Country of Others by Leïla Slimane

country of others

In this award-winning novel, Leïla Slimane draws on her own family’s inspiring story for the first volume in a planned trilogy about race, resilience, and women’s empowerment.

“1944. After the Liberation, Mathilde leaves France to join her husband in Morocco. 

But life here is unrecognizable to this brave and passionate young woman. Her life is now that of a farmer’s wife – with all the sacrifices and vexations that brings. Suffocated by the heat, by her loneliness on the farm and by the mistrust she inspires as a foreigner, Mathilde grows increasingly restless. 

As Morocco’s struggle for independence intensifies, Mathilde and her husband find themselves caught in the crossfire.” (Faber & Faber)

We hope you will join us.
