When she died in 1996, Marguerite Duras left four notebooks in a cupboard at her country home. Only now have their contents been published, including her account of her upbringing in Indochina, her gripping diaries of the war years in Paris, and a first draft of her novel The Lover. Written with unflinching clarity, they shed new light on the life and work of one of the great literary figures of the 20th century. Off-mint.
