The debut novel by the winner of the Prix Goncourt, The Ogre's Garden is a tale of addiction. Its protagonist, Adele, leads a double life. She strays from a calm, stable marriage to her surgeon husband into multiple sexual encounters. Eventually, she completely loses control of h...er existence. Written in prose of elegant - but never bloodless - neutrality, Leila Slimani's second novel published in English explores not so much promiscuity as the modern-day pressures that drive Adele into this perilous loss of self. It is a compassionate portrait of sex addiction that leads readers through the labyrinth of desire into an understanding of solitude, isolation and the search for authenticity as our common fate.
