Simple Passion
Simple Passion | Annie Ernaux, Tanya Leslie
1 post | 3 read | 1 to read
A New York Times Notable Book and France's #1 best-seller for eight months - with more than 400,000 copies sold - A Simple Passion documents the desires and indignities of a human heart ensnared in an all-consuming passion. As the narrator attempts to plot the emotional and physical course of her two-year relationship with a married foreigner, where every word, event and person either provides a connection with her beloved or is subject to cold indifference, she seeks the truth behind an existence lived for someone else, and in its aftermath, she finds it.

“Beginning in September of last year, I did nothing else but wait for a man.” And so starts her impassioned account of an affair with a man who consumed her every thought, movement, and desire for months. Living in this suspended reality, in which every second existed for the sole purpose of accelerating time to a moment in the future when she‘d be lost in his presence once more, everything else just faded into the periphery. 5/5⭐️
