Hiroshima mon amour = Hiroshima, my love by Alain Resnais( Visual )

190 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential films of all time, Alain Resnais' first feature is a beautifully realised parable of love and war set in bomb-ravaged Japan. Following Night and Fog, his devastating chronicle of the Nazi concentration camps, Resnais was asked to make a film about the atomic bomb, and responded with this moody masterwork, a love story in which a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) exorcise their memories of war during a torrid affair amid the ruins of Hiroshima. Utilizing an innovative flashback structure and Academy Award-nominated screenplay by novelist Marguerite Duras, Resnais delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish, in a film that defined the French New Wave

Détruire, dit-elle by Marguerite Duras( Book )

88 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic novel by the best-selling author of The Lover, erotic intrigue masks a chillingly deceptive form of madness. Elisabeth Alione is convalescing in a hotel in rural France when she meets two men and another woman. The sophisticated dalliance among the four serves to obscure an underlying violence, which, when the curtain of civilization is drawn aside, reveals in her fellow guests a very contemporary, perhaps even new, form of insanity. Like many of Duras's novels, Destroy, She Said owes much to cinema, displaying a skillful interplay of dialogue and description. There are recurring moods and motifs from the Duras repertoire: eroticism, lassitude, stifled desire, a beautiful woman, a mysterious forest, a desolate provincial hotel. Included in this volume is an in-depth interview with Duras by Jacques Rivette and Jean Narboni

L'amour by Marguerite Duras( Book )

82 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A man-- the traveler-- arrives in the seaside town of S. Thala with the intent to abandon his present, and instead finds himself abruptly reintroduced to his past. Through his subsequent interactions with 'her, ' the woman to whom he was briefly engaged as a young man over twenty years ago, and 'him, ' the man who walks and keeps watch over 'her, ' the traveler is soon drawn back in and acclimated to the strange timelessness and company that is S. Thala. Written in a stark and cinematic narrative style, this sequel to Duras's 1964 novel The Ravishing of Lol Stein is a curious, yet haunting representation of the human memory: what we choose to recall, what we choose to forget, and how reliable we ultimately decide ourselves to be"--Publisher's web site
The North China lover by Marguerite Duras( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed in France as "an incomparable pleasure", Marguerite Duras's newest novel is a fascinating retelling of the dramatic experiences of her adolescence that have shaped her work. Far more daring and truthful than any book she has written before, it emphasizes the tough realities of her youth in Indochina and reveals much that her earlier works concealed. An instant number-one bestseller in France, The North China Lover both shocks and entrances its readers. Initially written as notes toward a filmscript for The Lover, the book has the grainy, filmic qualities of a documentary. Gone are the romantic and nostalgic readings of the past. Here are the humiliations and passions of the poverty-ridden world in which Duras grew up: the intense sexuality of the young women who were her friends and classmates, a group of adolescents impatient for the experiences of adulthood while still caught up in the conflicts of childhood. For all who have admired Duras's previous work, here is an exciting and unexpected reading of her past - a work the French critics called a return to "the Duras of the great books and the great days."

"C'est encore une fois les vacances. Encore une fois les routes d'été. Encore une fois des églises à visiter. Encore une fois dix heures et demie du soir en été. Des Goya à voir. Des orages. Des nuits sans sommeil. Et la chaleur. Un crime a lieu cependant qui aurait pu, peut-être, changer le cours de ces vacances-là . Mais au fond qu'est-ce qui peut faire changer le cours des vacances?"--Publisher's description
Abahn, Sabana, David by Marguerite Duras( Book )

48 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Available for the first time in English, Abahn, Sabana, David is a late-career masterpiece from one of France's top writers. Late one evening, David and Sabana, communists, arrive at a country house where they meet Abahn, the man they've been sent to guard and ultimately kill for his perceived transgressions. A fourth man arrives (also named Abahn), and throughout the night these four characters discuss understanding, capitalism, violence, revolution, and dogs. A gun in the house disquiets the scene. Suspenseful and thought-provoking, Duras's novel is evocative of Samuel Beckett as it explores human existence and suffering in the confusing contemporary world"--
