Leila Slimani wins the prix Goncourt for 'Chanson Douce'

It's the literary accolade French authors dream of: the annual prix Goncourt has been awarded to Leila Slimani for her novel "Chanson Douce". The book recounts the murder of two young children by their nanny; a dark and chilling psychological tale of what lies beneath the surface of a seemingly perfect family. Also, disorder, dissidence and social unrest are the factors that sparked much of the work in "Soulèvements" or "Uprising", a new show at the Jeu de Paume gallery.


And we check out a new exhibition at Paris's Philharmonic concert hall, which delves into the life and work of Ludwig Van Beethoven.
