Congratulations Patrick Modiano!

Patrick Modiano was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature “for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation.”

Since the announcement, it has been underlined that he is very little known outside of France, which came to me as a surprise. So here are a few articles to get acquainted to this author before his works are available in English:

The New Yorker

The Guardian
