Reviews

Delicate and cunning . . . Modiano's method is to sidle up to subjects of mystery and horror, indicating them without broaching them, as if gingerly fingering the outside of a poison bottle. . . He opens dark doors into the past out of a sunlit present. -- John Sturrock * Times Literary Supplement *
Modiano is a pure original -- Adam Thirlwell
