Set amidst Morocco’s postwar struggle for independence, The Country of Others by Leila Slimani traces the fortunes of Mathilde . . .

Following the Liberation in 1944, Mathilde leaves France to join her husband in Morocco. But her life is now that of a farmer’s wife, with all the sacrifices and vexations this brings. Suffocated by the heat, by her loneliness and by the mistrust she inspires as a foreigner, Mathilde grows increasingly restless. As Morocco’s struggle for independence intensifies, Mathilde and her husband find themselves caught in the crossfire.
