Summary

A tense, provocative and nuanced novel about a rape accusation in an idyllic commune.

I was in my sixth month when the girl came knocking.

The girl came empty-handed. On the threshold, her hair down, her jeans tight.

'Are you the professor’s wife?' the girl asked me. 'I have to speak to you,' she said.

'The professor raped me,' the girl said.

Critic reviews

"This uncompromising, fiercely intelligent novel confirms the moral usefulness of serious art: it reminds us that the world is more complicated than our righteous certainties; it forces us to acknowledge the abyss." (Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You)

"The first post-Weinstein novel." (Vanity Fair)

"Elegant, mesmerizing and merciless." (La Repubblica)
