At the time he was awarded the Nobel Prize last October, many of his books were unavailable in English translation and, Missing Person , the novel for which he won the Prix Goncourt in , had sold only 2, copies in the United States.

The availability of his work in English has now been largely solved through the industrious work of several talented translators, and more of his novels are becoming available on an almost monthly basis. Modiano achieved literary recognition early in his career, at least in France, but his creation of himself as a writer could not have been easy, given his penurious and precarious early life.

He was born in , just outside Paris, but his family had not been in the terroir of France for very long. His mother was Belgian, born in Antwerp.

Modiano himself admits to stealing books from both private individuals and from libraries in order to sell them to second-hand book dealers; his mother was not beyond shoplifting. His father, with whom Modiano never established a bond, continually placed him in schools in and out of Paris whenever he could afford to, and eked out a living through shady deals with disreputable people, some of whom were thought to have been gangsters.

Rather, his novels are infused with the tragic sense of life , as defined by the philosopher Miguel de Unamuno, who named this state of existence: the sense of tragedy that comes from our being self-conscious creatures who, through the act of living, are brought face to face with our frailty and our limitations, the chief one of which is our mortality. Modiano admits in Ring Roads that:. It is my duty, since I knew them, to drag them — if only for an instant — from the darkness. It is a duty, but for me it is also a necessary thing. For in Modiano, no villain will be captured, no vengeance wreaked, no one brought to justice.

What happened to them, where they are, where they are going, why they are going where they are going, what they have lost, what they have left, are questions with which they struggle. And, they struggle with memory issues. Then I forgot what I had said. A minimum of memory is indispensable, if one is to live really. Memory occupies an odd place in consciousness, somewhere between reality and dream. What our memories hold, how we maintain them or find them when they seem to have disappeared, and how we verify that they are correct if we find them, are the very subjects about which Modiano writes.

By capturing his memories about people and places and writing them down, in the form of novels and memoirs, he forces himself, and us, to remember them. How could anyone resign himself to that? Other writers have devoted their art to capturing memories, notably Proust, to whom Modiano is often compared. In Proust, however, memories arise from sensations or sensorial impressions, and in Remembrance of Things Past , Marcel, the narrator of the novel, does not question the verisimilitude or reality of his memories.

The ties connecting me to the present were stretching. The exquisite structure and pacing of his storytelling technique allows him to create, like Proust, a hallucinatory world of intense emotional reality. I will not attempt to convey ways in which his intricate plot lines alone provide pleasure, nor comment on the sheer stylistic beauty of his classic French prose — the clarity, the precision — nor analyze his technique of shifting timeframes, and use of multiple verb tenses, all of which create a unique aesthetic experience while reading him.

I will instead discuss the way his themes play out in his art — and since Modiano says he is always writing the same book, it should do to analyze one or two of them. Modiano was awarded the Prix Goncourt for Missing Person more than 30 years ago, but the novel reads as fresh as if it had been written yesterday. It begins portentously with the sentence: I am nothing.

This early work is constructed like a detective tale, and the narrator is a detective. Guy is suffering from amnesia and when he went to work at the agency, Hutte provided him with papers to back up his adopted name and identity. It is only after his boss retires, and he is freed from labor, that he can take on the task of finding himself. Naturally this involves an investigation. At first Guy is led to believe, mistakenly, that he may be a man called Freddie Howard de Luz. However, in time his research leads him to believe his real name may be Jimmy Pedro Stern, and he may have been born in Greece.

But some evidence indicates that his real name and identity might be Pedro McEvoy and he might be from the Dominican Republic. In seeking his past, the narrator rounds up the usual Modiano suspects for questioning, and gives us their names, addresses, old photos, and telephone numbers. Missing Person is a slim book of just over pages, in which more characters — no fewer than 22 — make an appearance than in many novels twice the length. Not an insignificant number of them have died or committed suicide.

In his search to discover who he is, Guy works by intuition, premonition, supposition, and dream-like imaginings. I believe that the entrance-halls of buildings still retain the echo of footsteps of those who used to cross them and who have since vanished. Something continues to vibrate after they have gone, fading waves, but which can still be picked up if one listens carefully.

Yet, despite his persistent attempts to raise clues from the locations he visits, physical reality resists his efforts. Guy follows a number of leads in his search for himself. Early on, the Russian Styoppa de Dzhagorev gives him a red box containing mementos and keepsakes, photographs and newspaper clippings of the past that might be useful in his search.

Later on, Guy visits the former villa of Freddie Howard de Luz, whom he thinks may have been a childhood friend. Finally, his investigation leads him to conclude that he and Denise were probably victims of a double-cross when, in an attempt to cross the Franco-Swiss border in the winter, during the waning days of the war, Denise disappears.

He, too, may have disappeared. He has given lectures and taken part in discussions in contemporary art centres in France and worldwide. His books have received critical acclaim. Skip to main content.
