  1. Great review! I’ve been curious about this author but hadn’t been aware of this particular title- it sounds like a great place to start with her work. I’m definitely drawn to how contemplative this book sounds, the difficult subject matter, and the attention to legality/morality. It all appeals- I’m glad it mostly worked for you! I think I’ll check it out at some point.

  2. I’ve been thinking of picking up one of Annie Ernaux’ books, perhaps this one, although I think I might start with the book where she talks about being abused at Summer Camp (it’s called Girl something, I think?) since chronologically it would go first. Her books sure sound like a punch to the gut. Great review as always! I’m always happy to find new reads through your blog, and you write so beautifully!

    • Thank you, that’s so sweet 😭 That definitely makes sense as a place to start; the exciting thing about having admired this one so much is that she has such an extensive back catalogue that I can now go back and explore! 📚
