Search - List of Books by Annie Ernaux

Annie Ernaux (born in Lillebonne, Seine-Maritime on 1 September 1940) is a French writer.

She won the Prix Renaudot in 1984 [1] for her book La Place, an autobiographical narrative focusing on her relationship with her father and her experiences growing up in a small town in France, and her subsequent process of moving into adulthood and away from her parents' place of origin.

As a child, Annie Ernaux lived in Yvetot in Normandy. Very early in her career, she turned away from fiction to concentrate on autobiography. Her work combines historic and individual experiences.She charts her parents' social progression (La place, La honte), her adolescence (Ce qu’ils disent ou rien), her marriage (La femme gelée), her abortion (L’événement), Alzheimer's disease (Je ne suis pas sortie de ma nuit), the death of her mother (Une femme) and breast cancer (L’usage de la photo).Ernaux also wrote L'écriture comme un couteau with Frédéric-Yves Jeannet.

Her latest novel "Les années" (Gallimard, 2008) is considered her 'magnum opus' and was very well received by the French critics. In this latter book Ernaux places herself into third person perspective (Elle) for the first time and gives a vivid look at French society after the Second World War - up till now - through the images kept, and words spoken by this same woman. A poignant social history once again of a woman and the society she lived in, a woman who has looked death in the eye and realises and describes what will disappear, and how relative that is, if she would disappear.

Many of her works have been translated into English and published by Seven Stories Press.
