PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Childhood As one of the leading proponents of the i nouveau roman i Nathalie Sarraute is often remembered for her novels including i The Golden Fruits i which earned her the Prix international de litterature in But her carefully crafted and evocative memoir i Childhood i may in fact be Sarraute s most accessible and emotionally open work Written when the author was eighty three years old but dealing with only the first twelve years of her life i Childhood i is constructed as a dialogue between Sarraute and her memory Sarraute gently interrogates her interlocutor in search of her own intentions more precise accuracy and indeed the truth Her relationships with her mother in Russia and her stepmother in Paris are especially heartbreaking long gone actions are prodded and poked at by Sarraute until they yield some semblance of fact imbuing these maternalistic interactions with new deeper meaning Each vignette is bristling with detail and shows the power of memory through prose by turns funny sad and poetic Capturing the ambience of Paris and Russia in the earliest part of the twentieth century while never giving up the lyrical style of Sarraute s novels this book has much to offer both memoir enthusiasts and fiction lovers .
