Inspired largely by her own adolescence in French Indochina, Duras wrote this novel in 1950, just after divorcing her first husband and remarrying. The story presents a widow living with her two children. Their living conditions are deplorable : The mother, disillusioned after seeing her dams destroyed by the invincible Pacific and harassed by a corrupt administration, begins to sink into madness.
