Moderato Cantabile by Margaruite Duras (1960)

This is my third work of fiction by Margaruite Duras.  It is a very interesting story about class distinctions.  It focuses on the relationship of a factory owners wife to her son and his piano teacher and her growing interest in a man who used to work for her husband.  She often goes to a bar where factory workers take their leisure and we see her impact on the men there.
