‘You will be obsessed.’ LEILA SLIMANI
It will keep you firmly in its grips.’ OYINKAN BRAITHWAITE

The Woman in the Purple Skirt is being watched. Someone is following her, always perched just out of sight, monitoring which buses she takes; what she eats; whom she speaks to. But this invisible observer isn’t a stalker – it’s much more complicated than that.

‘Disquieting and wryly funny, The Woman in the Purple Skirt is a taut and compelling depiction of loneliness and obsession.’ PAULA HAWKINS
‘Very powerful . . . Reading this book made me feel like I was in an unstable and strange world.’ SAYAKA MURATA
