Editorial Reviews

Review

"La Vie extrieure bears witness to the desire, the need to capture life, even the insignificant. It attests to the memory that we have of others, including strangers, and in whom Annie Ernaux searches for and recognizes herself. La Vie extrieure is also a book of assessment and indignation. The writer reacts to human distress, war, poverty, and to the arrogance of power." -- Le Devoir "Le Devoir" (09/28/2009)

Jonathan Kaplansky has translated numerous works, including Hélène Dorion's novel Days of Sand and Hélène Rioux's novel Wednesday Night at the End of the World.

Annie Ernaux, as usual, turns life's mundane events into a fascinating study of human nature and behavior.
