About the Author

Internationally renowned author Patrick Modiano has received many prestigious literary awards, among them the 2014 Nobel Prize for Literature. Damion Searls has translated thirty books from German, French, Norwegian, and Dutch, including Patrick Modiano's Young Once.


"Modiano uses the fabled light of the Riviera the way Raymond Carver uses California sunshine: its harshness accentuates the shadows."--Robyn Creswell, New York Review of Books
"Nobel Prize-winner Modiano does more with less in this subtle and haunting noir. He places the reader in uncertain terrain from the outset . . . Modiano makes the reader work to put the puzzle pieces in order, while maintaining a convincing atmosphere of tension and dread."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"While I have admired Modiano's books, to varying degrees, I had not fallen in love with any of his work, until now: his crime novel Sundays in August snuck up on me and struck me deeply. I loved it!"--Trevor Berrett, The Mookse and the Gripes
"Sundays in August is as twisted and bleak--and, ultimately, satisfying--as any noir, a fatalistic sense of inevitability tinged with just enough uncertainty hanging over it."--M.A. Orthofer, Complete Review
"One of Modiano's most unusual novels, Sundays in August is darkly fun to read without being 'light, ' and thoughtful without being 'heavy, ' always intriguing in its views of a young main character trying to figure out his confusing world. Sensitively translated by Damion Searles."--Mary Whipple, Seeing the World Through Books
