Reviews

"Marlene reads like noir cinema mixed with a dream. A subtle and haunting book that I couldn't put down." --Brian Castner, author of The Long Walk

Praise for Elle

"Djian's slim, disturbing novel, already a controversial bestseller in France, is unsparing and fiercely intelligent...[Elle] is slight but packs a powerful punch." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[Djian] lets an unpredictable woman tell her side of the story...events and moods flow into each other without warning or apology." --Bookforum

"Incisive, corrosive, sexy, as sad as it is funny, and incontestably exhilarating." --Vogue (France)
