Near Fine. Some rubbing to dust jacket, else a tight, close to immaculate copy.

Four short novels written between 1955-1962 by one of the foremost novelists of 20th century France, Marguerite Duras.

From the introduction by Germaine Breé: "They share a unique, elusive, poetic quality, the hallmark of Duras's originality. Desire and love, as in all romances, well up within them and fatally encounter the hard boundaries of a reality that inevitably circumscribes, limits, modifies and destroys."
