Financial Times - Weekend
Illustration for the FT’s book review of Adèle, a ‘tender and troubling’ novel written by Leïla Slimani, translated by Sam Taylor. We follow the protagonist Adèle as she fills her life with casual sexual encounters. Although married with a small child, to Adèle “Eroticism covered everything. It masked the banality and vanity of things.” and she becomes the “mistress of the magic”.
