A Novel

Description

As featured in The New Yorker: “A year ago, I picked up a book . . . that I’ve thought about pretty much every day since. . . . [It] felt less like an entertainment, or even a work of art, than like a compulsion. I found it extraordinary.” —Lauren Collins

She has the keys to their apartment. She knows everything. She has embedded herself so deeply in their lives that it now seems impossible to remove her.
 
When Myriam, a French-Moroccan lawyer, decides to return to work after having children, she and her husband look for the perfect nanny for their two young children. They never dreamed they would find Louise: a quiet, polite, devoted woman who sings to the children, cleans the family’s chic apartment in Paris’s upscale tenth arrondissement, stays late without complaint, and hosts enviable kiddie parties. But as the couple and the nanny become more dependent on one another, jealousy, resentment, and suspicions mount, shattering the idyllic tableau. Building tension with every page, The Perfect Nanny is a compulsive, riveting, bravely observed exploration of power, class, race, domesticity, and motherhood—and the American debut of an immensely talented writer.

The #1 international bestseller and winner of France’s most prestigious literary prize, the Goncourt

Customer Reviews

Cassel

400 pages for a novel... way to abrupt an ending. I felt cheated. Good read but disappointed at whoever edited this book from original!

Kept waiting for more

The book kept my interest but I kept waiting for more insight into the characters and then it just ended. Bought the paperback for my mom yesterday but will return it.

Lost in translation

Apparently this version was translated from the original French version. It shows. But not the fault of the author. Compelling story. Do we ever really know the "strangers" in our daily lives? 😳
