Marguerite Duras was one of the leading intellectuals and novelists of post-war France. She owed her success to her obstinacy to be and remain herself, come what may and at whatever cost to her own person. This collection, retrieved from the papers she left at her death, offers a fascinating insight into Duras’ life and work. Her notebooks retrace the formative experiences in Duras’ life: her childhood in Indochina and, in wartime, her harrowing wait for her husband’s return from a concentration camp. pp. 336 First Edition
