A Romantic Tour de Force set in 1920s Saigon

The bibliophile in your life will devour this evocative, lusty romance by Marguerite Duras. Set in 1920s Saigon, The Lover tells the story of a fifteen-year-old girl who finds intimacy and financial support in an affair with a wealthy Chinese businessman several years her senior. Sensuous and poetic, it is a literary feast for those who appreciate good writing as much as sexy scenery.
