The Young Man
Author: Ernaux, Annie ; Strayer, Alison
Publication Date: 09/12/2023
The Young Man is Annie Ernaux’s account of her passionate love affair with A., a man some 30 years younger, when she was in her fifties. The relationship pulls her back to memories of her own youth and at the
same time leaves her feeling ageless, outside of time— together with a sense that she is living her life backwards.
Amidst talk of having a child together, she feels time running its course, and menopause approaching. The Young Man recalls Ernaux as the “scandalous girl” she once was, but is composed with the mastery and the self-assurance she has achieved across decades of writing. It was first
published in France in 2022.
