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.
