Breathing Underwater is a silent novel: no one speaks directly and there are no conversations, lending the story a fittingly underwater feel, with muted, muffled voices. The similarities between Darrieussecq and Virginia Woolf - particularly Woolf's novel The Waves - are difficult to ignore.

Breathing Underwater is a silent novel: no one speaks directly and there are no conversations, lending the story a fittingly underwater feel, with muted, muffled voices. Darrieussecq is neither derivative nor imitative; she is too confident, too original for that. But descriptions of 'the violet sea squeezed and rumpled by the evening', and of a window 'glossy with sunlight' reflect Woolf's luscious sensuousness.

Breathing Underwater book. I love Marie Darrieussecq. She forces her reader to truly be present in the text. She writes beautifully.

A young woman walks out on her life, taking only her young daughter.

Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. Darrieussecq's UNDERCURRENTS surpasses her first literary hit, PIG TALES, in both its vision and its execution. While PIG TALES dripped with sensuality as its main character metamorphosed into a erotic pig, it lost some of its momentum in the middle of the book.

Furthermore, Marie Darrieussecq's books often include a mother-child relationship. Finally, the themes of metamorphosis and ghosts regularly come back in Darrieussecq's novels. A Brief Stay With the Living (2001).

Breathing Underwater). by Marie Darrieussecq. Title: Undercurrents. Author: Marie Darrieussecq. But Ms. Coverdale has only translated one other book by Marie Darrieussecq (Pig Tales); My Phantom Husband was, in fact, translated twice into English, by two different translators. Neither of them was (or corresponded to) Linda Coverdale. Marie Darrieussecq has trouble with her titles. At least in translation.

A young woman walks out on her life, taking only her young daughter. She drives down to the seaside and they spend the first night camping on the beach. The next day, they cross the border and stop in a small Spanish town. And there they stay. The old life of routine and immobility is transformed into one of freedom and fluidity. Mother and daughter play on the beach, go for walks, eat ice cream. They watch the ocean. And they make new contacts: with the owner of the flat, with a swimming instructor who is teaching the child and with a strangely hesitant private investigator, hired by the woman's deserted husband...Intensely sensual, simple yet unnerving, Breathing Underwater is Darrieussecq's tour de force. The novel was hailed in France as 'gripping' (Le Monde), 'truly inspired' (Elle) and 'the good news we've all been waiting for' (Le Figaro).
