Marguerite Duras – Blue Eyes, Black Hair

The indefiniteness of love

Emotions that chase each other on a stage made of nothing. Gestures told with great elegance and care, without a defined plot, in a story entwined with bounces of light. Great silences that knot together simple dialogues, leading the reader to move forward on a narrow and unsteady catwalk, through the absurdity of love. Love it or hate it: a book that accepts no compromises.

Translation by Amneris Di Cesare (edited by Sara Di Girolamo)

Giorgio Olivari
Giorgio Olivari was born in Brescia in the last century. He has been a professional in the field of industrial design for more than thirty years. After the first forty years as a reader he discovered writing by chance: a life’s joke. His forever partner enrolls him in a creative writing course: maybe for fun, more likely to get rid of him. A spark that, once lit, does not go out but becomes a narrative, stories, thoughts; some of which published by BESA in “Pretesti Sensibili - Sensitive Excuses” (2008). His first collection of short stories, “Futili Emotivi- Futile Emotions”, was published by Carta & Penna Editore in 2010. His passion for literature led him to “infect” other readers by coordinating reading groups: “Arcobaleno” in Paderno Franciacorta, “Chiare Lettere” in Nave. He actively collaborates with the literary magazine Inkroci with reviews and stories.
