Marguerite Duras’s The Malady of Death (1982, English trans. 1986) is 64 pages long, and roughly 5000 words. We love this great little book.

. . .This beautifully wrought erotic novel is an extended haiku on the meaning of love, “perhaps a sudden lapse in the logic of the universe,” and of its absence, “the malady of death.” “The whole tragedy of the inability to love is in this work, thanks to Duras’ unparalleled art of reinventing the most familiar words, of weighing their meaning.” – Le Monde
