This Little Family

A Novel

by Inès Bayard Translated by Adriana Hunter

“A short, sharp debut…a cry of anguish and fury about how easily men get away with committing sexual violence, and how devastating the consequences are for women. Bayard is a muscular, propulsive writer, and the novel, elegantly translated by Adriana Hunter, feels urgent, immediate. You can’t stop reading, even as you want to look away.” —New York Times Book Review

“[A] stunning debut…with a defiant, feral energy that has echoes of Elena Ferrante’s Days of Abandonment…a powerful study of sexual violence and its aftermath.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Dark, devastating and quite unforgettable.” —The Times

“A provocative novel that plunges into the recesses of women’s psyches.” —Foreword Reviews

“[This Little Family] is as devastating and insightful a castigation of societal views of women and roles as The Perfect Nanny by Leïla Slimani. A disturbing psychological novel that will stay with you for a long time.” —Crime Time

“Remarkable…Bayard’s writing is sharp, cold, precise, and sends chills down your spine. You read this novel with bated breath.” —La Presse

“An unsettling first novel…Expert at delving into the pains of a woman’s body and soul, far from all cliché, Inès Bayard plunges the reader into a zone of discomfort.” —L’Express

“As effective as it is disturbing…a staggering, unflinching novel.” —Culturebox
