‘Lacombe, Lucien’ and the Early Novels of Patrick Modiano: ‘La Ronde de Nuit (The Night Watch)’

View all 16 comments. Not every book by an important writer is an important book. The first fifty pages went over my head. Lots of talking heads with exotic names making disconnected remarks.

The narrative voice was so thin, so elusive that I found it impossible to get any kind of emotional foothold in the story. Ronre a narrative voic Not every book by an important writer is an important book. Eventually a narrative voice did emerge. A first person narrative of a character who, as we guessed, is informing for both sides during WW2 in Paris and whose two best friends are inventions.

Now it did get more interesting. In a proper novel no doubt he would have rnode a compelling character but here, apart from wanting to get his mother to safety in Switzerland we learn little about his motives. Maybe that was the point, that such robde are unknowable. But Modiano created him so he must know him even if he pretends not to.


The problem was that the artifice of pretending not to know a character you do felt awkward here. Modiano seems to like unknowable characters. But while this technique of creating ghosts rather than characters worked fabulously well in Dora Bruder here it felt forced and trite. tonde

On the face of it, it seems elegant and fancy when you’re reading “Mon petit” and “Prefet de Polis”. Lz, you realize that you don’t understand what’s being said at least once on every single page minus a few simply because it’s not your language. I couldn’t connect to this book at all.

I don’t have much to say, beyond the fact that it’s unapproac I understand that this is critically acclaimed. I don’t have much to say, beyond the fact that it’s unapproachable for someone who isn’t well versed in Francais! Aug 01, Jacqueline rated it it was ok. Boeiend gegeven, een dubbelspel.

Modiano’s parents met in occupied Paris during World War II and began their relationship in semi-clandestinity.

Modiano’s childhood took place in a unique atmosphere: This brought him closer to his brother, Rudy, who died of a disease at age 10 the nut of Patrick Modiano from to are dedicated to him. This disappearance announced the end of the author’s childhood, who continued to hold a marked nostalgia for this period. He received his baccalaureate at Annecy but didn’t proceed with his higher education. Starting that year, he did nothing but write.

On September 12,Modiano married Dominique Zerhfuss. Our groomsmen were Queneau, who had mentored Patrick since his modiaho, and Malraux, a friend of my father. They started to argue about Dubuffet, and it was like we were watching a tennis match! That said, it would have been funny to have some photos, but the only person who had a camera forgot to bring a roll of film.

There is only one photo remaining of us, from behind and under an umbrella! From their marriage modianp two rone, Zina and Marie Other books in the series.
