Aniisha AnnaMaria (annamariaw) Apologies if this is not the right place to post such an inquiry...I am trying to find titles by "Annie Arnaux", a French feminist writer mostly know for her short stories. I've read translations of least two of her books about her father and mother.

I think I may have the incorrect spelling of her name because I cannot find her listed anywhere, including: goodreads, OCLC's World Cat, Amazon, CARLI's I-Share, so wondered if anyone could shed any light on the name and the titles of her books. Many thanks.

Laura (laurahogan) | 72 comments Her name is actually Annie Ernaux. The three of hers I can remember offhand are Simple Passion, a memoir about having an affair with a married man, and A Woman's Story and A Man's Story, the ones you're referring to, which are semi-autobiographical stories about Ernaux's parents. There are a number of others. Her writing is very spare and direct, and perhaps not for everyone.
