What we're left with is 'the truth' about her father - in so much as she experienced it, or it was recounted to her for the time she wasn't around. L'autrice ha insegnato e conosce il potere del giudizio e il discrimine minore che traccia nella coscienza.

Apetecia-me falar, escrever acerca de meu pai, da sua vida e da distância que surgira entre ele e eu durante a adolescência. The author also touches upon the inadequacy of language itself to convey our memories, our feelings.Babamın Yeri de yine babasıyla küçük, belki önemsiz ve sıradan bile denebilecek anıları üzerinden bir kuşağa, toplumun dönüşümüne, o dönüşümün izlerine baktığı bir eser Ernaux’nun. Ipak, ono što oboje uspeju da izvuku iz nerečja je ne samo krajnje upečatljivo već i događaj po sebi. I also read it now because I saw Ilse had been reading Ernaux’s work and as so often happens with Ilse, she nudged me (gently, urgently) through her lovely review to read her work. Sanki soğuk, mesafeli bir yerden babasının ölümünü ve hayatını anlatıyor gibi yazar ama aslında her kelimesine sinmiş hüznü ve duygu yoğunluğunu sezmek zor değil.

I’ve read three Ernaux so far – A Girl’s Story, Happening, and The Years of which Years is probably most praised but the one that impacted me least. 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. Ernaux's father had to leave school at the age of twelve to work on a farm due to his family's financial situation. 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.

I know a family with a similar situation, they clearly love one another but the parents feel alienated from their highly academic sons. When she tells her father’s story, Annie Ernaux pictures the peasant and blue-collar social classes from 1900 to the mid-sixties. Despite the obvious influence (and indeed nature) of history and memory in her books, Ernaux does not like to be considered a memoirist or have her work referred to as autobiography.
