Rachel Kushner’s 10 favorite books

Rachel Kushner’s new novel is The Mars Room. One of her ten favorite books, as shared at Vulture.com:
The Ravishing of Lol Stein by Marguerite Duras

Duras … There is no one like her, who speaks with such simple and yet high-flown authority. Her tone is Biblical, absolute. She brushes off mediocre narrative expectations, and with this novel, a critical moment in her extraordinary writing career, and life, made something entirely new.
