About the Author

PATRICK MODIANO was born in 1945 in a suburb of Paris and grew up in various locations throughout France. In 1967, he published his first novel, La Place de l'├ętoile, to great acclaim. Since then, he has published over twenty novels--including the Goncourt Prize-winning Rue des boutiques obscures (translated as Missing Person), Dora Bruder, and Les Boulevards des ceintures (translated as Ring Roads)--as well as the memoir Un Pedigree and a children's book, Catherine Certitude. He collaborated with Louis Malle on the screenplay for the film Lacombe Lucien. In 2014, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. The Swedish Academy cited "the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the Occupation," calling him "a Marcel Proust of our time."
Barbara Wright has translated several Raymond Queneau novels; indeed, as John Updike wrote in The New Yorker, she has waltzed around the floor with the Master so many times by now that she follows his quirky French as if the steps were in English. She has also translated works by Alain Robbe-Grillet, Robert Pinget, Nathalie Sarraute, and Marguerite Duras. She lives in London.
