Annie Ernaux at Edinburgh International Book Festival

REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST

A book that’s truly special comes along all too rarely. But Annie Ernaux’s The Years is one. Though billed as a novel, it’s really a kind of ‘collective memoir’ of post-war France from a lower-middle class perspective: a Proustian rush of memories drawn from a French society increasingly addicted to the cult of consumerism. Today, one of the greatest living francophone authors discusses her masterpiece.
