  • All My Friends

    By Marie NDiaye
    Translated from French by Jordan Stump

    Following her universally acclaimed novel Three Strong Women, French phenom Marie NDiaye returns with five intricately narrated stories showcasing characters both robustly real and emotionally unfathomable.

  • Self-Portrait in Green

    By Marie NDiaye
    Translated from French by Jordan Stump

    Who are the green women? They are powerful (one is a disciplinarian teacher). They are mysterious (one haunts a house like a ghost). They are seductive (one marries her best friend’s father). And they are unbearably personal (one is the author’s own mother). They are all aspects of their creator: Marie NDiaye, an author celebrated worldwide as one of France’s leading writers.

  • My Heart Hemmed In

    By Marie NDiaye
    Translated from French by Jordan Stump

    Marie NDiaye has won lavish praise for her unrivaled ability to reveal our innermost lives. My Heart Hemmed In is her grandest statement on the hidden selves we rarely glimpse, but whose presence is always with us.
