Annie Ernauxs work, wrote Richard Bernstein in theNew York Times, represents a severely pared-down Proustianism, a testament to the persistent, haunting and melancholy quality of memory. In theNew York Times Book Review, Kathryn Harrison concurred: Keen language and unwavering focus allow her to penetrate deep, to reveal pulses of love, desire, remorse. nbsp; In this journal Ernaux turns her penetrating focus on those points in life where the everyday and the extraordinary intersect, where things seen reflect a private life meeting the larger world. From the war crimes tribunal in Bosnia to social issues such as poverty and AIDS; from the state of Iraq to the worlds contrasting reactions to Princess Dianas death and the starkly brutal political murders that occurred at the same time; from a tear-gas attack on the subway to minute interactions with a clerk in a store: Ernauxs thought-provoking observations map the worlds fleeting and lasting impressions on the shape of inner life. nbsp
