Patrick Modiano: Chevreuse

The latest addition to my website is Patrick Modiano‘s Chevreuse This novel follows the usual Patrick Modiano modus operandi. A man (Modiano’s alter ego) looks back, both from the age of seventy and the age of twenty. He meets various suspicious characters, a mysterious woman, visits a mysterious flat in Paris and revisits the house he lived in as a child (with no parents to be seen) in Chevreuse. We and he gradually learn that dirty deeds are afoot and that he may have witnessed a key event when he was five, for which the bad guys are now after him (when he is twenty and they have rediscovered him). Another enjoyable novel from Modiano.
