Fun! I suggested this theme for #TopTenTuesday on October 1st, 2019, and I realize it’s back!
So to avoid featuring some of the same books, I’m going to do what I did two years ago (picking numbers 1-10), but in French this time!

I’m listing books that I have read, and that you probably not have heard about, for the most part.

Please click on the covers to access my reviews in English
I added the English cover when I know the book is available in English

Book review: Moderato Cantabile

moderato-cantabile

Moderato Cantabile

Last time I had read Marguerite Duras was for literary studies, some decades ago…
On day, hanging out in the used books section of a Chicago bookstore, I unearthed Moderato Cantabile, a classic I had never read. Here are just a few impressions, in English and in French, based on my reading in the original in French.

Marguerite Duras won le prix Goncourt in 1984 (L’Amant).
