In many ways it brings to mind the rather complex relationship I had with my own father, and how that relationship differs from the one we often have with our mothers. I don't know, it's an unspectacular story and style, at least in this translation, but also quietly moving. There is a distinct difference between the way Ernaux describes the life of her mother and that of her father. cuốn sách gây ấn tượng bởi sự giản dị và đi vào lòng tôi bởi sự chân thành, tình yêu của người con gái đối với bố nhưng lại cứ tỏ ra dửng dưng, chối bỏ tình cảm ấy.

Between the lines you occasionally notice some self-doubt, namely whether she has not betrayed her own environment by her entry into the world of bourgeoisie; and perhaps that's the reason why she wrote this book: “Je hasarde une explication: écrire c'est le dernier recours quand on a trahi. It reminds me of the way Mark Polizzotti has translated a large number of the Patrick Modiano novels that I've read.He thought I lacked practical sense and skills, and did what he could to instill ta foundation for survival.

L'autrice sembra essere sempre in grado di identificare le forme mentis dei genitori anche in diverse situazioni e anche a distanza di anni.

She reflects upon the deficiency of the language to portray the simple, ungraceful country life of father. Y en el proceso, dividiéndolo en pedazos, descubrimos todo lo que lo hizo ser, partes de padres que tal vez reconozcamos, en los nuestros.

By choosing to expose the web of his life through a number of selected facts and details, I feel that I am gradually moving away from the figure of my father. I know a family with a similar situation, they clearly love one another but the parents feel alienated from their highly academic sons.

And in doing so, taking him part by part, we discover everything that made him be, parent’s parts we may even recognize, in ours. Okuduklarım arasında en sevdiğim Annie Ernaux kitabı olmadı belki ama artık şunu söyleyebilirim bence: şu kadına bir Nobel verin! Aunque se trata de la vida en un pueblo francés de la primera mitad del siglo pasado, no se distingue mucho de la de los años 60 en un pequeño pueblo español, donde la vida entera está expuesta a la vista y a la crítica de todos. Il a toujours appelé ainsi le travail de la terre, l’autre sens de culture, le spirituel, lui était inutile.

Although Ernaux is always billed as autofiction, I read it as autobiography, particularly as the editions I have are white Fitzcarraldo ones which are supposed to be non-fiction. in a humorous tone, it connects to shame and inadequacy felt by her father due to his humble working class background wherein he is doomed to a life of solitude and distrust; the shame that also binds him to his social settings and prevent him to move along with the flow time and evolution. O forse la bellissima conclusione del romanzo, che fa pensare allo scorrere impietoso del tempo, a un mondo superato, continuamente in rinnovamento, suggerisce, appunto, questo (? Barely educated and valued since childhood strictly for his labour, Ernaux's father had grown into a hard, practical man who showed his family little affection. g. medicine, law) and were moving in different social circles, there could be painful breaches between the old class and the new.

Por outro lado, Annie teve uma ascensão social por ter tido a oportunidade de uma boa educação e de ingressar na Universidade. She grew up in rural France, in a small Norman town where there was a very strict morality and work ethic, strongly influenced by the Catholic Church.
