L'amant by Marguerite Duras

So now I've finally read it. And yes, it is a beautiful piece of work at 100 pages plus. I'm not going to write that much about it, just that it's been like reading a headline after going through the immense body of work.

The one thing that pisses me off about this book is that publishing companies seem to want to degrade it to an erotic tale about a poor, very young porcelain white girl and an older, very rich Chinese man, like this was the main story. It's not.

Whatever you do, do not see the the movie.
