9780704373440: A Woman's Story

On her mother's death, Annie Ernaux travels back in time to reunite Mother and Daughter - writing both movingly and quixotically 'to capture the real woman, the one who existed independently from me, born on the outskirts of a small Normandy town, and who died in the geriatric ward of a hospital in the suburbs of Paris'. In this powerful and poignant tribute - reissued a quarter of a century after Quartet Books first published the book in English - Ernaux writes: 'I believe I am writing about my mother because it is my turn to bring her into the world.'

From the Inside Flap:

"A stunning, emotional testament...that may move some readers to think of their own mothrs, even in a way they hadn't before."

Annie Ernaux's mother has just died. She is the only child, so it is up to her to make the final arrangements. And it is up to her to remember the proud, vibrant, intense, and difficult woman who once was her mother before age and illness vanquished her. A poignant recollection of a mother's life in France before and after the war, this woman's story can only be known in part. Yet, in this case, that is enough.

An acclaimed bestseller in France, A WOMAN'S STORY is every women's story--a quiet jewel of a memoir, breathtaking and brilliant.

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK
