On her mother’s death, Annie Ernaux travels back in time to reunite Mother and Daughter – writing both movingly and quixotically ‘to capture the real woman, the one who existed independently from me, born on the outskirts of a small Normandy town, and who died in the geriatric ward of a hospital in the suburbs of Paris’. In this powerful and poignant tribute – reissued a quarter of a century after Quartet Books first published the book in English – Ernaux writes: ‘I believe I am writing about my mother because it is my turn to bring her into the world.’
