This novel is a retelling of the dramatic experiences of the author's adolescence that have shaped her life and work. It emphasizes the harsh realities of her youth in Indochina, revealing much that her earlier works concealed, from the humiliations of poverty to the sexual turmoil of adolescence.Contraportada:
Already acclaimed in France as 'an incomparable pleasure', and as her best book for many years, Marguerite Dura's new novel is a fascinating retelling of the dramatic experiences of her adolescence – as previously described in 'The Lover'.
The most daring and truthful book she has written, 'The North China Lover' emphasis the harsh realities of Dura's youth in Indochina, and reveals much that her earlier works concealed. 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 and the young girls who were her friends and classmates, a group of adolescents impatient for the experiences of adult life, but still caught up in the passions of childhood.
Described by French critics as a return to 'the Duras of the great books and the great days', 'The North China Lover' is an exciting and unexpected reading of the past life of a great European author.
'Everything is here, immediate, sensual. It's utterly stunning and diabolical.'
'One of the most sensitive, the most touching of stories. Delicate in its immodesty, tender in its cruelty.'
