A Woman’s tale is Annie Ernaux’s "deeply affecting account of moms and daughters, adolescence and age, and goals and truth" (Kirkus Reviews). Upon her mother’s loss of life from Alzheimer’s, Ernaux embarks on a frightening trip again via time, as she seeks to "capture the genuine lady, the person who existed independently from me, born at the outskirts of a small Normandy city, and who died within the geriatric ward of a health center within the suburbs of Paris." She explores the bond among mom and daughter, tenuous and unshakable instantaneously, the alienating worlds that separate them, and the inescapable fact that we needs to lose those we adore. during this quietly strong tribute, Ernaux makes an attempt to do her mom the best justice she will: to painting her because the person she used to be. She writes, "I think i'm writing approximately my mom since it is my flip to deliver her into the world."
