Congratulations to 2014 Nobel Laureate Patrick Modiano!
Check out our book Patrick Modiano by Alan Morris. This is the first English literary study of this best-selling French author, whose works are found increasingly in translation throughout the world and who is attracting considerable critical attention outside France. In this lucid study, Alan Morris explores Modiano’s fifteen major novels. He also traces Modiano’s development as a writer and the tragedies which have influenced his works: the death of his younger brother, the neglect of his father and the horrors of the German occupation. Morris delves into Modiano’s themes of time, memory, identity and the past, clearly demonstrating this intriguing writer’s key place in French writing today.
