Marguerite Duras is an author who always “comes back”, recently thanks to several Catalan independent publishing houses: Club Editor, in 2010, with Moderato cantabile; LaBreu, in 2014, with La tarda del senyor Andesmas and Edicions Sidillà, in 2018, with La vida tranquil·la. Last September, Club Editor published La vida material, one of her last books, a non-fiction work, the result of her conversations with Jérôme Beaujour, an exercise she’d call “the motorway of the word”.
Taking these titles as a starting point, the three publishers will take the floor in order to explain and read “their” particular Duras.
