Il gusto delle parole in Marguerite Duras

Il gusto delle parole in Marguerite Duras

Intellectually busy, active in politics, scandalous and argumentative, Marguerite Duras focused on writing about the desire and the ability to lis-ten. Her writings tell us the taste but also the dis-gust for life, nausea and appetite, fragrance and stink, hunger and starve.

We find in this book the flavours and recipes that accompanied her life and her work, including the famous book Marguerite’s kitchen, withdrawn from the market and, nowadays, object of worship.

Among the many recipes that characterised the life and work of Marguerite Duras in this book are, for example, Dublin coddle, gaspacho, vichyssoise and many others.
