La place by Annie Ernaux( Book )
123 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 1,571 libraries worldwide
Annie Ernaux's father died exactly two months after she passed her practical examination for a teaching certificate. Barely educated and valued since childhood strictly for his labor, Ernaux's father had grown into a hard, practical man who showed his family little affection. Narrating his slow ascent towards material comfort, Ernaux's cold observation reveals the shame that haunted her father throughout his life. She scrutinizes the importance he attributed to manners and language that came so unnaturally to him as he struggled to provide for his family with a grocery store and cafe in rural France. Over the course of the book, Ernaux grows up to become the uncompromising observer now familiar to the world, while her father matures into old age with a staid appreciation for life as it is and for a daughter he cautiously, even reluctantly admires. A Man's Place is the companion book to her critically acclaimed memoir about her mother, A Woman's Story
Simple passion by Annie Ernaux( Book )
74 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 1,195 libraries worldwide
Without compromises or concessions, Annie Ernaux plots the course of the human heart through her "simple passion" for a young married man from another country living in France for a short time. This is the true story of a physical and emotional journey, not a sentimental one. The passion of this short-lived affair is joined by the courage and the exactitude of the narrator wanting to know the truth of her emotions. With extraordinary simplicity, Ernaux exposes her passion without explaining it, and in the end hers is the pleasure of having lived and loved with her eyes open
A woman's story by Annie Ernaux( Book )
80 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 795 libraries worldwide
A Woman's Story is Annie Ernaux's "deeply affecting account of mothers and daughters, youth and age, and dreams and reality" (Kirkus Reviews). Upon her mother's death from Alzheimer's, Ernaux embarks on a daunting journey back through time, as she seeks 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." She explores the bond between mother and daughter, tenuous and unshakable at once, the alienating worlds that separate them, and the inescapable truth that we must lose the ones we love. In this quietly powerful tribute, Ernaux attempts to do her mother the greatest justice she can: to portray her as the individual she was. She writes, "I believe I am writing about my mother because it is my turn to bring her into the world."
