  • All My Friends

    By Marie NDiaye
    Translated from French by Jordan Stump

    Chilling, provocative, and touching, All My Friends shows a master stylist using her unique gifts to render the personal horrors we fight every day to suppress—but in All My Friends they’re allowed to roam free.

    “NDiaye, who received France’s most prestigious literary prize for Three Strong Women and may be that nation’s most startling new literary voice, brings to life an electrifying rogue’s gallery of social outcasts, disgruntled wives, and loony strivers.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

  • Self-Portrait in Green

    By Marie NDiaye
    Translated from French by Jordan Stump

    Who are the green women? They are powerful (one is a disciplinarian teacher). They are mysterious (one haunts a house like a ghost). They are seductive (one marries her best friend’s father). And they are unbearably personal (one is the author’s own mother). They are all aspects of their creator: Marie NDiaye, an author celebrated worldwide as one of France’s leading writers.

  • My Heart Hemmed In

    By Marie NDiaye
    Translated from French by Jordan Stump

    Conjuring an atmosphere of paranoia, My Heart Hemmed In creates a nightmarish world where strange coincidences and uncertain relationships are all part of some shadowy truth. Surreal, allegorical, and psychologically acute, My Heart Hemmed In shows a masterful author giving her readers her most complex and compelling world yet.

    “If any contemporary European writer is on the verge of Ferrante-like recognition, it’s NDiaye.” —Flavorwire
