About the Author

Ann Lenore Derrickson, the translator of this novel by French writer Marguerite Duras, has stepped outside her normal scholarly precincts with this book. Up to now, she has worked thoroughly within the canon of English literature, writing and presenting poetry and papers on Shakespeare s Ophelia, Yeats, Virginia Woolf, and the medieval Gawain poet, among others, at such venues as Comitatus, The National Book of Poetry, The Philological Association of the Pacific Coast, and the Modern Language Association.

This scholarly reputation has been fully earned. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Ann Derrickson earned her B.A. from Harvard University and her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. Now she is moving into working with modern European fiction, a major shift in fields.

Asked why she selected this book, she said, ''The themes interest me and make it a good work to translate.''

Format: Paperback
Let's hope it gets back in to print. Perhaps one of Duras' most overlooked masterpieces set in torrid central Italy, forest fires creep closer to the resort, and mourning mine-searcher's mother awaits night and day the permit to bury her dead son. The senseless waiting and order we construct to hide the shallowness of our lives.

Once you get past the first few pages, the formatting is so bad the book is unreadable. A travesty against the author. Do not buy this book!
