I'm curious to see how you find both Malady of Death and Empire. Whenever I try to read anything else by Duras, I always inevitably find my way back to that book (that's actually from my grad school days). Empire is interesting because it has a fascinating blend of Foucault, Agamben, Heidegger, Marx, etc. all put into the globalization discussion (the third of their trilogy, Commonwealth, just came out).
Why do I have the feeling that it will take years just to type in my 'completed' shelf?
