If it’s Friday, it must be France …
Congratulations to France’s Patrick Modiano, the 111th recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
“Modiano’s works centre on topics such as memory, oblivion, identity and guilt. The city of Paris is often present in the text and can almost be considered a creative participant in the works. Rather often his tales are built on an autobiographical foundation, or on events that took place during the German occupation.” Click here to read more at NobelPrize.org.
What better excuse do I need to post a couple of photos in celebration of his hometown?
Have you read any of Patrick Modiano’s work? This morning his novel, Missing Person, was #76,199 on Amazon’s best seller list. Now it is #3! I just ordered my copy.
