 Annie Ernaux

Annie Ernaux (born in Lillebonne, Seine-Maritime on 1 September 1940) is a French writer. She won the Prix Renaudot in 1984 for her book La Place, an autobiographical narrative focusing on her relationship with her father and her experiences growing up in a small town in France, and her subsequent process of moving into adulthood and away from her parents' place of origin.Her latest novel Les années (Gallimard, 2008) is considered her 'magnum opus' and was very well received by the French critics. In this latter book Ernaux writes of herself in third person point of view (elle) for the first time. She gives a vivid look at French society from after Second World War until today. It is the poignant social history of a woman and of the society she lived in. The female character in the book has looked death in the eye; she describes what she realizes will soon be disappearing and how relative that all is, if she should disappear too.
