The lover by Marguerite Duras( Book )

45 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of an affair between a fifteen-and-a-half-year-old French girl and her Chinese lover
The North China lover by Marguerite Duras( Book )

76 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,484 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."

Blue eyes, black hair by Marguerite Duras( Book )

60 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette histoire d'une "union blanche et désespérée" (M. Duras, p. 31) est plus un scénario ou une ébauche de pièce de théâtre qu'un roman. L'histoire est simple: un jeune homosexuel qui vient d'être quitté paie une femme pour qu'elle l'écoute pleurer son amour perdu. De ce ##contrat## naît une passion platonique entre deux êtres qui ne veulent rien, qui sortent tous les deux d'une "longue souffrance indécise" (B. Poirot-Delpech, ##Le Monde##, 14 novembre 1986, p. 21, 24) et échangent des regards noyés dans "la simplicité des larmes" (p. 25). L'oeuvre tourne autour des rapports entre amour et malfaisance, jouissance et douleur, comme le signale le critique du ##Monde## qui admet "l'exaspérante réussite" du dernier Duras, dans la veine des précédents jusqu'à la parodie. Les détracteurs de l'auteure pourront une nouvelle fois dénoncer son maniérisme larmoyant, ses brumes et ses affectations, sans compter diverses platitudes de style ("meublée de meubles", p. 21, etc.)

49 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 676 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"--
