About this deal

She notices this way of writing seems to bring her closer to the truth she is exploring, relieves her of the dark, heavy burden of personal remembrance by establishing a more objective approach. In 2016, we launched A Woman’s Story, a 32 page report of a woman’s moving and powerful account of going through the policing and judicial system after being raped. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Exploring the tenuous bond between mother and daughter, at once tenuous and unshakeable, the alienating worlds that separate them, and the inescapable truth that we must one day lose the ones we love, this is a quietly powerful tribute. In her opinion, self-improvement was first and foremost a question of learning and nothing was more precious than knowledge.

Yet Ernaux's distress is also fuelled by the realisation that she'll 'never hear the sound of her [mother's] voice again', and by the fact that the fraying bond between the present and the past has finally been 'severed'. But perhaps because I was reading her books in French, I also had a layer of detachment from them that helped. But she knew her shortcomings (both personal and social) and didn't want her daughter to suffer the same. She started losing things—"I can't put my hands on it"—and was astonished to find them in places where she claimed she had never put them. To get away from these contrasting views, which come from my earliest childhood, I try to describe and explain her life as if I were writing about someone else’s mother, and a daughter, who wasn’t me”.Everything about my mother – her authority, her hopes, and her ambitions – was geared to the very concept of education. Although her mother had been suffering of Alzheimer’s and was living in a nursing home, she didn’t want to lose her. He was a gent of strong opinions, and he shared them with those he met: "You must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life''; "be nomadic. And Ernaux should take credit for that, for her book allows her mother's life to transcend its alarming end.

Madville’s books are available from all these online retailers in hardback, paperback, ebook, and audiobook formats. This is a book you should never miss if you are someone who loves to read memoirs or if you have someone who has Alzheimer's disease in your family. I agree that books like Flights are difficult to read, which is one of the reasons why I reread it again a few times in my life.I’m not saying that books on death and dying aren’t valuable and shouldn’t be read, it’s just that I find them a hard slog, and naturally, not very enjoyable. We offer multiple digital ebook formats and for a select few of our titles, we offer audiobook editions.
