The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2014 has been awarded to French author Patrick Modiano, “for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation”.
The Guardian has published this lovely article outlining Modiano's life and career.
At this time few of Modiano's books are available to order. However, due to such a prestigious award his books will likely undergo a reprinting. In the meantime, if you are curious about any of Modiano's books please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore for details.Categories: Awards, Saskatoon, Winnipeg
