"A stunning, emotional testament...that may move some readers to think of their own mothrs, even in a way they hadn't before."

Annie Ernaux's mother has just died. She is the only child, so it is up to her to make the final arrangements. And it is up to her to remember the proud, vibrant, intense, and difficult woman who once was her mother before age and illness vanquished her. A poignant recollection of a mother's life in France before and after the war, this woman's story can only be known in part. Yet, in this case, that is enough.

An acclaimed bestseller in France, A WOMAN'S STORY is every women's story—a quiet jewel of a memoir, breathtaking and brilliant.
