The Quiet Tenant reading group guide

In the same way that Room by Emma Donoghue captivated book clubs across the nation, The Quiet Tenant by Clémence Michallon is ripe for discussion. It is a unique take on the serial killer novel—one that explores the psychological impact on the women in the killer’s life, and how the bonds between those women give them the strength to fight back. Both a searing thriller and an astute study of trauma, survival, and the dynamics of power, there is so much to unpack in this debut suspense novel. Please use the following guide to facilitate conversation about this incredibly thoughtful, nuanced, and electrifying read.
