Blankets by Craig Thompson (read as “Manteau de neige”).  An honest yet enchanting autobiography about growing up and first love.

Perhaps my favorite single caption of the book.

Freud by Corrine Mayer and Anne Simon. Une BD biographique délicieusement, légèrement psychadélique.

By Annie Ernaux, Ecrire la vie, a compilation of her life’s work including Les armoires vides, La honte, L’événement, La femme gelée, La place, and Une femme.  Her work is part autobiography, biography, fiction novel, and documentary.

Ecrire n’est pas pour moi un substitut de l’amour, mais quelque chose de plus que l’amour ou la vie.

-Ernaux
