For someone who don't read in French, we might have missed a lot of good books by Nobel Prize winner Patrick Modiano.
Do winning Nobel prize make a difference? Of course. His book is now in translation. They are now making up for lost time and we will soon be reading his work soon.
In the meantime, these two books are out.
The first one, Suspended Sentences is actually a trilogy are about lives as young persons during the Nazi period.
The second one Search Warrant is about finding a missing girl.
I've not read it yet. But this would very likely to be in my to get books list.
