Patrick Modiano&;s first novel since his 2014 Nobel Prize revisits moments of the author&;s past to produce a spare yet moving reflection on the destructive underside of love, the dreams and follies of youth, the vagaries of memory, and the melancholy of loss. Writing from the perspective of an older man, the narrator relives a key period in his life through his relationships with several enigmatic women&;Geneviève, Martine, Madeleine, a certain Madame Huberson&;in the process unearthing his troubled relationship with his parents, his unorthodox childhood, and the unsettled years of his youth that helped form the celebrated writer he would become.
