"A short, sharp debut...a cry of anguish and fury about how easily men get away with committing sexual violence, and how devastating the consequences are for women. Bayard is a muscular, propulsive writer, and the novel, elegantly translated by Adriana Hunter, feels urgent, immediate. You can't stop reading, even as you want to look away." --New York Times Book Review

"[A] stunning debut...with a defiant, feral energy that has echoes of Elena Ferrante's Days of Abandonment...a powerful study of sexual violence and its aftermath." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Dark, devastating and quite unforgettable." --The Times

"A provocative novel that plunges into the recesses of women's psyches." --Foreword Reviews

"[This Little Family] is as devastating and insightful a castigation of societal views of women and roles as The Perfect Nanny by Leïla Slimani. A disturbing psychological novel that will stay with you for a long time." --Crime Time

"Remarkable...Bayard's writing is sharp, cold, precise, and sends chills down your spine. You read this novel with bated breath." --La Presse

"An unsettling first novel...Expert at delving into the pains of a woman's body and soul, far from all cliché, Inès Bayard plunges the reader into a zone of discomfort." --L'Express

"As effective as it is disturbing...a staggering, unflinching novel." --Culturebox
