Annie Ernaux over the course of her career as a writer has written extensively about her own life and its dramas in the first person.  She has recently produced a summative volume called Les Années in the third person which pulls everything together.

La place is a very short account of social life in her childhood village from the start of the 20th century, showing how education pulled her out of the class in which she was brought up.

The account of her life charts in particular the way in which she felt she became alienated from her father as she became a teacher and moved away from the village of her birth.  An elegant, short work to study the book nevertheless has much to discuss and covers many themes.
