The North China lover by Marguerite Duras ( Book )
71 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 11 languages and held by 1,308 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".

Wartime writings : 1943-1949 by Marguerite Duras ( Book )
34 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,014 libraries worldwide
"For decades it has been known that Marguerite Duras kept four notebooks in a blue closet in her country home in France. But only now do readers and critics have the chance both to savor this new material and to understand its significance. For in these notebooks, kept between 1943 and 1949, are the first versions of Duras's most famous works, the true stories behind The Lover, The War, and several other classics." "An immediate bestseller in France, these wartime writings reveal the difficult, poignant circumstances of Duras's upbringing in colonial Vietnam, where her desperate mother was eager to sell her to the man who became known as "the lover." Here too is her revulsion at her first kiss and her deep unhappiness over this forced liaison. Once Duras emigrates to France, we follow her life through the war into the Liberation and the horrific events that she observed in the presence of the resistance members, who interrogated and tortured former collaborators. She also tells of the horrendous effect of finding her husband, returning nearly dead from the Nazi concentration camps. Throughout, Duras paints an unflinching picture of this troubled period."--Jacket.
