Reviews
"Exteriors is honest, genuine and skillfully executed." --Columbus Dispatch

"Ernaux's writings walk a tightrope between art and confession, immersing us in a territory bounded on one side by commitment and on the other by desire." --Newsday

"Journal du dehors (Exteriors) is the opposite of an intimate diary. It shows a woman observing, without scorn or pity, the world out of which she came . . . . It is the text of a writer for whom the text is, simultaneously, interiority and provocation." --Telerama
