Text: English, French (translation)From Library Journal:
These 53 feature stories published between 1957 and 1980 show that even in her ephemera Duras is an inspired observer and careful stylist. Although the subjects range from crime and current events to art and literature, the focus is always on the person who catches Duras's attention by an individual trait that paradoxically links him or her with mankind in generalfor instance, the 12 pieces that give insightful glimpses of women like Leontyne Price, Margot Fonteyn, and Madeleine Renaud, performance geniuses who are uniquely gifted but embody widely shared female aspirations. There is also a broad range of journalistic format, from edited interview to artful vignette; each presents its poignant details skillfully. A reliable translation of a unique and interesting collection. Marilyn Gaddis Rose, SUNY at Binghamton
