Publisher's Synopsis

A deeply affecting account of mothers and daughters, youth and age, and dreams and reality' (Kirkus Reviews), this is Ernaux's daunting journey through time as she was confronted with the reality of her mother's death from Alzheimer's. Exploring the tenuous bond between mother and daughter, at once tenuous and unshakeable, the alienating worlds that separate them, and the inescapable truth that we must one day lose the ones we love, this is a quietly powerful tribute. A New York Times Notable Book and a Los Angeles Times Fiction prize finalist.'
