The New Novel From the International Booker Prize Shortlisted Author

‘A spellbinding nightmare … Addictive’ FERNANDA MELCHOR

‘Grippingly original, a book of intense power’ PHILIPPE SANDS

One of the most powerful voices of current Chilean literature’ EL MUNDO

The shockingly compulsive new novel from the International Booker-shortlisted author of The Remainder. 

Clean begins with an inescapable fact: a girl has died. Told by Estela, a maid to a wealthy, middle class family who speaks to us from a locked room, we hear of her plight and the circumstances that led to this moment. As we enter into her account of her daily existence, we see how her apparently simple life begins to sour, but would that drive her to the unthinkable?

Disturbing and profound, Clean explores domestic work, class and violence, against the backdrop of Chile’s changing political landscape. This is one of the most daring and compelling thrillers in international literature.

Clean is the best book of the year. It is the novel of a vital and truly extraordinary writer’ LA TERCERA
