By Annie Ernaux
A Woman’s tale is Annie Ernaux’s "deeply affecting account of moms and daughters, formative years and age, and goals and fact" (Kirkus Reviews). Upon her mother’s dying from Alzheimer’s, Ernaux embarks on a frightening trip again via time, as she seeks to "capture the genuine lady, the one that existed independently from me, born at the outskirts of a small Normandy city, and who died within the geriatric ward of a sanatorium within the suburbs of Paris." She explores the bond among mom and daughter, tenuous and unshakable right now, the alienating worlds that separate them, and the inescapable fact that we needs to lose those we like. during this quietly robust tribute, Ernaux makes an attempt to do her mom the best justice she will: to painting her because the person she was once. She writes, "I think i'm writing approximately my mom since it is my flip to deliver her into the world."
