Watch Us Dance

by Leila Silmani


Watch Us Dance combines the youth, vibrancy and allure of Andre Aciman with the historical fiction force of Maggie Shipstead, and the exquisite sense of place and time of The Lost Daughter.

The seductive, vibrant new novel from international bestselling author Leila Slimani.

Morocco, 1968. As she stands at the window, Mathilde reflects on the opportunities before her. Looking out at her garden, the roses - brought in from Marrakech - have bloomed and their sweet, fresh scent pervades the garden. Anything feels possible, and she is determined to celebrate it. Don't they have the right to enjoy life, after dedicating their best years to the war and then to this farm? Only Mathilde is blissfully unaware of what this new chapter of Moroccan history means for her family, the country and its future. Her babies are now grown up, and they are all about to learn how life can take wild and unexpected turns.
