About the Author
The author of some twenty works of fiction and memoir, ANNIE ERNAUX is considered by many to be France's most important writer. In 2022, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. She has also won the Prix Renaudot for A Man's Place and the Marguerite Yourcenar Prize for her body of work. More recently she received the International Strega Prize, the Prix Formentor, the French-American Translation Prize, and the Warwick Prize for Women in Translation for The Years, which was also shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize. Her other works include Exteriors, A Girl's Story, A Woman's Story, The Possession, Simple Passion, Happening, I Remain in Darkness, Shame, A Frozen Woman, A Man's Place, and The Young Man.
"Ernaux's works aren't coy or glancing; they've been sharpened to a point. Though she seems like a writer of details, each book is a vital mission, carried out with thrusting force. . . . [A]t the start of the strikes against Macron this year, when workers and students once more exploded against the police, the eighty-two-year-old Ernaux appeared at the head of a march: the somewhat dissonant image of the writer, fresh from her Nobel win, who remembers where she came from and still knows whose side she is on. As she told the audience in Stockholm: given her experience as a woman and as a child of the working class, she writes to get revenge." --Tobi Haslett, Harper's Magazine

"The harrowing beauty and brevity of these books and their apparent simplicity disguise somewhat the punishing cost of their honesty." --Rachel Cusk, New York Times Magazine
