Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Arriving in S. Thala, a traveler is reintroduced to the woman he was engaged to years ago. Written in a stark and cinematic narrative style, this sequel Ravishing of Lol Stein is a curious, yet haunting representation of the human memory: what we choose to recall, what we choose to forget, and how reliable we ultimately decide ourselves to be.
From The Publisher*Never before available in English, this is the "sequel" to Ravishing of Lol Stein, one of Duras's most loved books.
