I Remain in Darkness

Author(s): Annie Ernaux (translated by Tanya Leslie)

Biography & Memoir | Women in Translation Month

This extraordinary evocation of a grown daughter's attachment to her mother--and of both women's strength and resiliency--recounts Annie's attempt to first help her mother recover from Alzheimer's disease and, then, when that proves futile, bear witness to the older woman's gradual decline and her own experience as a daughter losing a beloved parent. I Remain in Darkness is a new high-water mark for Ernaux, surging with raw emotional power and her sublime ability to use language to apprehend her own life's particular music.
