Description - The Possession by Annie Ernaux
Self-regard, in the works of Ernaux, is always an excruciatingly painful and exact process. Here, she revisits the peculiar kind of self-fulfilment possible when readers examine themselves in the aftermath of a love affair, and sometimes even through the eyes of the lost beloved.
