I was introduced to Marguerite Duras’ writing through her book The War, which I read at university. I enjoyed it immensely and then sought out anything else written by her I could find in English. She wrote about sexuality and love in a way I had never read before. I spent many years afterwards trying to emulate her style.

Below is a fragment of the film Hiroshima Mon Amour, which she wrote. I highly recommend checking out her books.
