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.
