STOCKHOLM: French writer Annie Ernaux was awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in literature for the courage and clinical acuity with which she uncovers the roots, estrangements and collective restraints of personal memory.


"French writer Annie Ernaux - awarded the 2022 #NobelPrize in Literature - was born in 1940 and grew up in the small town of Yvetot in Normandy, where her parents had a combined grocery store and cafe. Her path to authorship was long and arduous," the tweet added.


The Nobel Prize laureate, in her writing, examines a life marked by strong disparities regarding gender, language and class. She has written over 30 literary works.


In 'L'occupation' (2002) Ernaux dissects the social mythology of romantic love. On the basis of notes in a diary recording her abandonment by a lover, she both confesses and attacks a self-image built on stereotypes. Writing becomes a sharp weapon for dissecting truth.
