    Born into a family of modest means, Annie Ernaux grew up in the village of Yvetot in Upper Normandy.

    After studying in Rouen and Bordeaux, she became a professor of literature. In 1971, she was awarded the Agrégée de Lettres Modernes and taught in Bonneville, Annecy and Pontoise.

    She published her first novel, Les armoires vides, in 1974. She devoted many years to writing her vast literary fresco Les années from the end of the Second World War to the present day.

    This was followed by La place, La honte, L’événement, L’occupation, L’autre fille, Retour à Yvetot and Regarde les lumières mon amour, all of which have received numerous literary awards and distinctions.

    A woman of the left, Annie Ernaux was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2022 for her work as a whole.
