About the Author
Patrick Modiano is a bestselling novelist and the winner of some of the most prestigious literary awards in France, including the Prix Goncourt and the Prix Mondial Cino Del Duca for lifetime achievement. In 2014 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for "the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation."
-New York Times Book Review "We can only remain grateful to the constellation of luck and chance that allowed, first, Frenkel's survival, and now, the recovery of her exceptional book."
-Wall Street Journal "Detailed, emotional, and careful... A compelling account of crushing oppression, those who sought to flee it, and those who, at great risk, offered help."
-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Riveting. . . . Frenkel, who died in 1975, writes that it is 'the duty of those who have survived to bear witness to ensure the dead are not forgotten.' Frenkel's remarkable story of resilience and survival does just that, and will truly resonate with readers." --Publishers Weekly "Insightful, sympathetic, suspenseful, and eventually triumphant, this memoir is a worthy addition to the WWII canon."
