From the Publisher:
In this volume of four short novels, Duras demonstrates her remarkable ability to create an emotional intensity and unity by focusing on the intimate details of the relationships among a few central characters. Exceptional for their range in mood and situation, these four novels are unparalleled exhibitions of a poetic beauty that is uniquely Duras.
Marguerite Duras studied law and political science at the Sorbonne, where she was active in leftist circles. Upon graduation, she was married and worked as a secretary in the French Ministry of Colonies. Duras portrayed herself as a member of the Resistance during the German occupation of France in 1940, but actually worked for a German-controlled bureau that, among other things, censored books, and had a friend (who was possibly her lover) in the Gestapo. Duras denied any involvement with the Germans and after the war became an even more committed leftist than she was in her youth. Duras won the prix Goncourt in 1984 for her novel THE LOVER, which was also made into a film. She wrote the screenplay for the celebrated film HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR. Her last book was a memoir, NO MORE ("C'EST TOUT), which chronicles her approach toward death in early 1996.
