              'Disturbing and powerful ... I loved it' Leila Slimani, author of Lullaby Everything started one Saturday in July... Anna and Constant Guillot and their two daughters live in the remote mountain village of Carmac. Everyone in Carmac knows each other - that is until Bakary and Syl...via Langlois arrive with their three children, the first black family to have lived in the village. The new family's impressive chalet and expensive cars are in stark contrast with the modesty of those of their neighbours, yet despite their initial differences, the Langlois and the Guillots form an uneasy friendship. But when the Guillot's finances come under strain, the underlying class and racial tensions of their relationship come to a breaking point, and the unthinkable happens... How could a seemingly 'normal' person commit an atrocious crime? And how can that person's loved ones ever come to terms with it afterwards?

              The Perfect Nanny meets Little Fires Everywhere in this stylish, intense psychological suspense novel about a couple in an insular French village whose lives are upended when a family of outsiders moves in--inspired by a true story. People Like Them is disturbing and powerful. It... explores the topics of racism and jealousy in a very subtle way. I loved it. --Leila Slimani, bestselling author of The Perfect Nanny Everything started one Saturday in July of 2015... Anna and Constant Guillot live with their two daughters in the peaceful, remote mountain village of Carmac, largely deaf to the upheavals of the outside world. Everyone in Carmac knows each other, and most of its residents look alike--until Bakary and Sylvia Langlois arrive with their three children. Wealthy and flashy, the family of five are outsiders in the small town, their impressive chalet and three expensive cars a stark contrast with the modesty of those of their neighbors. Despite their differences, the Langlois and the Guillots form an uneasy, ambiguous friendship. But when both families begin experiencing financial troubles, the underlying class and racial tensions of their relationship come to a breaking point, and the unthinkable happens. With piercing psychological insight and gripping storytelling, People Like Them asks: How could a seemingly normal person commit an atrocious crime? How could that person's loved ones ever come to terms with it afterward? And how well can you really know your own spouse?
