Blue eyes, black hair by Marguerite Duras( Book )

65 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,326 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.)

The North China lover by Marguerite Duras( Book )

35 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 947 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."
L'amour by Marguerite Duras( Book )

93 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 862 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
