Expertly interrogating the anatomy of an obsessive relationship in luminous, scalpel-sharp prose, Ernaux's unflinching account of her two-year affair with a married man is a classic of rich, confessional memoir.
In her spare, stark style, Annie Ernaux documents the desires and indignities of a human heart ensnared in an all-consuming passion.
Blurring the line between fact and fiction, she attempts to plot the emotional and physical course of her two-year relationship with a married man where every word, event, and person either provides a connection with her beloved or is subject to her cold indifference.
With courage and exactitude, Ernaux seeks the truth behind an existence lived, for a time, entirely for someone else.

'Annie Ernaux is one of my favourite contemporary writers, original and true. Always after reading one of her books, I walk around in her world for months.' - Sheila Heti, author of Motherhood
'The triumph of Ernaux's approach ... is to cherish commonplace emotions while elevating the banal expression of them.... A monument to passions that defy simple explanations.' - The New York Times
