Duras biographer and former director of the French Institute Alliance Française, Jean Vallier returns to FIAF to speak about the life and legacy of Marguerite Duras. In this special French-language talk, Vallier will give fascinating insight into his writing process and work as the great author’s biographer.

Jean Vallier's first of two projected volumes about Marguerite Duras is a wonderfully detailed and accurate biography of a woman famous for turning her own life into myth.
—Edmund White, The New York Review of Books, October 23, 2008
