Nobel Prize for Literature goes to Annie Ernaux

French author Annie Ernaux has been awarded the Nobel Literature Prize for 2022, the Swedish Academy declared on Thursday.

The Academy stated Ernaux won the prize for “the courage and clinical acuity with which she uncovers the roots, estrangements, collective restraints of personal memory” and noted the author will be presented with the prize on December 10 in Stockholm.

Ernaux is best known for three autobiographical novels, Cleaned Out, What they say goes and The Frozen Woman, as well as her historical memoir The Years, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize in 2019.
