About this deal

A literary sensation in France, Heatwave is an unsettling and evocative novel that examines our darkest impulses.

Originally published by Flammarion under the title La Chaleur, it won the Prix Femina des Lycéens and was nominated for the Prix Medicis and Prix Renaudot.Der eigentliche Clou ist ohnehin das Hintergrundrauschen in den Ohren: Léo hat eine Schuld auf sich geladen, oder zumindest eine Dummheit gemacht.

Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. This is a disturbing novella along the lines of a modern day The Stranger by Albert Camus or Catcher in the Rye by Salinger.If you like Slimani, I think you’ll enjoy this, and at just over 100 pages, chances are you’ll inhale it like I did. But most of the teenagers spend all their energy trying to escape from their parents’ attention and hook up with one another. Originally published in France with the title La Chaleur, Heatwave is Victor Jestin’s debut novel, masterfully translated into English by Sam Taylor, who has also translated Leïla Slimani’s work.
