The Possession(Seven Stories Press, 2008)

French author Annie Ernaux in a scant 62 pages examines an obsessive, jealousy-fueled romance gone bad. Is it fact or fiction? Self-regard is a common theme in Ernaux’s works so that’s a very difficult question to answer. If you’ve ever messed up a love affair, this is definitely an interesting read.
