It appears I have saved the best of Annie Ernaux for last, or near the last of the remaining oeuvre yet for me to read. This was an amazing journey shared with us, her readers. The pain and torture she was going through was beyond real as she daily lost her mother for good. ( )

In ''I Remain in Darkness'' (its title taken from the last coherent sentence her mother ever wrote) Ernaux abandons her search for a larger truth because, in the face of a loss as profound as that of her mother, all attempts to make sense of it have the feel of artifice.
