Three Strong Women (Vintage, $15) is heart-wrenching and beautifully written. Set in Senegal and France, this compact book reads like three separate novellas and details the relationships and nearly insurmountable trials of its three protagonists. These women are courageous and hardy—adapting to inhospitable environments like dandelions sprouting in pavement. Marie NDiaye, who was awarded the coveted Prix Goncourt for this novel, published her first fiction when she was just seventeen and is a “must read” for Francophiles. For all of us, this lyrical and brave work brings us one degree closer to understanding the resilience of the human spirit when faced with its own corruption.
