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 June 1964. He received a technology-oriented education, and works as an industrial design R&D professional. After his first forty years spent as a reader he discovers writing by chance. The twist of fate is his enrollment in a Writing School. After that, sparks begin to fly and soon the fire is set. A fire that turns into tales, stories and thoughts, some of which collected in the book “Pretesti Sensibili” published by BESA Editrice in 2008. “Futili Emotivi”, his first short story collection, was published by Carta & Penna Editore in 2010, after winning the first prize at the 2009 Praeder Willi literary contest.
