Shelf Awareness

“Hélène Grémillon’s debut, The Confidant, is a mystery full of passion and heartbreak underscored by the fearful uncertainty of life in Nazi-occupied France.”

“Alison Anderson’s seamless translation allows the terse voices of Grémillon’s characters to shine through with all their passion, envy and betrayal. This promising beginning from a new talent will keep readers guessing until its startling finale.”
