Book Club

L'amant, Marguerite Duras



On April 19th, at 5pm, come to our Book Club! Each month, you will discover a new book from a French-speaking author and talk about it in French.

An autobiographical novel awarded by Le Prix Goncourt

Set in the prewar Indochina of Marguerite Duras’s childhood, this is the haunting tale of a tumultuous affair between an adolescent French girl and her Chinese lover. In spare yet luminous prose, Duras evokes life on the margins of Saigon in the waning days of France’s colonial empire, and its representation in the passionate relationship between two unforgettable outcasts.
