 About the Book 

Not since Francoise Sagans Bonjour Tristesse has the world seen anything like it. Here is another young woman, romantically sensitive, quintessentially French, sharing the story of her awakening. In A Womans Story, it is a wakening to pain -- the pain of loss, for her mother has just died. In a Mans Place, Ernaux explores the complex relationship with her father. Simple Passion -- the tender recollections of a young womans obsessive affair with a married man -- crowns the trio.Graceful and beautifully written...Ernaux richly deserves her expanding international reputation.
