The North China lover by Marguerite Duras( Book )
106 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,582 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."
Hiroshima mon amour by Marguerite Duras( Book )

Released in 1959, Alain Renais's film, Hiroshima Mon Amour, was awarded the International Critics' Prize at the Cannes Film festival and the New York Film Critics' Award.

This book contains the complete script of the film, as well as Miss Duras' original synopsis and notes

Blue eyes, black hair by Marguerite Duras( Book )
61 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,317 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.)

Détruire, dit-elle by Marguerite Duras( Book )
84 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 930 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 )
88 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 832 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

49 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 681 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"--
