Adèle
by Leila Slimani




Overview -
Fascinating . . . Ad le has glanced at the covenant of modern womanhood--the idea that you can have it all or should at least die trying--and detonated it. --The New York Times Book Review

A] fierce, uncanny thunderbolt of a book. --Entertainment Weekly

From the bestselling author of The Perfect Nanny--one of the 10 Best Books of the Year of The New York Times Book Review--as well as Sex and Lies and In the Country of Others, her prizewinning novel about a sex-addicted woman in Paris

She wants only one thing: to be wanted.

Ad le appears to have the perfect life: She is a successful journalist in Paris who lives in a beautiful apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But underneath the surface, she is bored--and consumed by an insatiable need for sex.

Driven less by pleasure than compulsion, Ad le organizes her day around her extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she's been, until she becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making. Suspenseful, erotic, and electrically charged, Ad le is a captivating exploration of addiction, sexuality, and one woman's quest to feel alive.
