A Girl's Story

Author(s): Annie Ernaux; Karen Smelt (Translator)

Biography

Another masterpiece of remembering from Annie Ernaux, the Man Booker International Prize-shortlisted author of The Years.   In A Girl's Story, Annie Ernaux revisits the night fifty years earlier when she found herself overpowered by another's will and desire. In the summer of 1958, eighteen-year-old Ernaux submits her will to a man's, and then he moves on, leaving her without a "master," bereft. Now, fifty years later, she realizes she can obliterate the intervening years and return to consider this young woman that she wanted to forget completely. And to discover that here, submerged in shame, humiliation, and betrayal, is the vital origin of her writing life, her writer's identity.
