Reviews
"Patrick Modiano has never better expressed the quintessence of his art than in this somnambulistic novel. . . . Flaubert, we know, dreamed of writing a book ex nihilo, one that holds by sheer force of style, responds to the laws of pure rhetoric, can't be reduced to the author's life, and is, finally, superior. Little Jewel is Modiano's Bovary."--Jérôme Garcin, Le Nouvel Observateur--Jérôme Garcin "Le Nouvel Observateur"
"An appealing variation on the typical Modiano novel . . . well and convincingly handled by the author."--M.A.Orthofer, Complete Review--M.A.Orthofer "Complete Review"
"[An] intense and totally seductive novel of identity . . . Without a trace of sentimentality, Modiano creates one of the most revelatory of all his novels, one that shows the possibilities of redemption, even for those who have always been alone."--Mary Whipple, Seeing the World Through Books--Mary Whipple "Seeing the World Through Books"
"A simple story . . . that grows richer with each reading."--J.P. Smith, The Millions--J.P. Smith "The Millions"
