Published by The Jewish Theatre Stockholm.
Edited by Pia Forsgren, Barbro Schultz Lundestam, Anders Wester. Preface by Pia Forsgren. Text by Marguerite Duras, Laure Adler, Gérard Depardieu, Michel Foucault, Maurice Blanchot, Edgar Morin, et al.

While adapting French novelist Marguerite Duras’ (1914–1996) The Dogs of Prague for the stage, Pia Forsgren, Director of The Jewish Theatre in Stockholm, compiled an extraodinary anthology-cum-dossier on Duras. This magnificent two-volume edition consists of 40 short memoirs and portrait–essays on Duras with extensive documentation focusing on her activism for the Resistance, and for the French Communist Party as a comrade of Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and Jeanne Moreau (volume one); and a magnificent collection of 360 color and black-and-white photographs of Duras, from a passport photo of the little French-Vietnamese girl to her son Jean Mascolo’s wonderful portrait of an aged grande dame (volume two). The book’s paper jackets mimic worn faux-leather passport bindings; one features Duras’ ‘stamped’ initials, and the other features a specially designed ‘compass portrait’ of the author, with such points of orientation as Politics, Writing, Passion, Indo-China, Alcohol, Mother, War and Eroticism.
