Leila Slimani Interview by John Freeman

Wanted to share this April 29, 2019 LitHub article on Leila Slimani, author of The Perfect Nanny. Highly recommend to anyone who writes about, or enjoys reading, complicated and difficult protagonists. I have the tendency to do both. Per Slimani: “I want to show that violence doesn’t belong to one social class. I wanted to show that horror belongs also to the bourgeoisie and behind the mask there is a lot of hypocrisy. And hypocrisy makes you even more violent because you don’t want people to know what is happening in your life.” So true.
