Reviews

Praise for the French edition:

"Perhaps Modiano, a young man of 76, has never been so close to Proust: not in the phrasing, but in this particular way of telling--of finding--his lost time."--Fabrice Gabriel, Le Monde

"Modiano delivers a summary of his novelistic imagination. Masterful."--Samuel Dufay, L'Express

"Modiano blurs trails and exploits the precarious balance between reality and dream with the consummate art of a shaman."--Isabelle Lesniak, Les Echos

"Polizzotti's crisp and evocative translation keeps the reader hooked."--Publishers Weekly

"An interrogation of the past and of time itself. . . . Modiano's prose is mesmerizing as ever. . . . The story plays out with the intrigue of a good noir, with an unsurpassed depth of feeling and curiosity."--Dwyer Murphy, CrimeReads
