Honeymoon

Heftet / 2014 / Engelsk
From master storyteller Patrick Modiano: winner of the Nobel Prize in LiteratureJean B., the narrator of Patrick Modiano's Honeymoon, is submerged in a world where day and night, past and present, have no demarcations. Having spent his adult life making documentary films about lost explorers, Jean suddenly decides to abandon his wife and career, and takes what seems to be a journey to nowhere. He pretends to fly to Rio to make another film, but instead returns to his own Parisian suburb to spend his solitary days recounting or imagining the lives of Ingrid and Rigaud, a refugee couple he had met twenty years before, and in whom he had recognized a spiritual anomie that seemed to reflect and justify his own. Little by little, their story takes on more reality than Jean's daily existence, as his excavation of the past slowly becomes an all-encompassing obsession.
Les mer
"With the simple, melodious prose of a born storyteller and the spare intensity that has become his trademark, Modiano constructs an existential tale of suspense and longing, and of the past's hold over a shifting, ambiguous present. In the words of Le Monde, this novel truly shows 'a magician at work'."--Page 4 of cover.

Praise for Honeymoon "A beautiful example of Modiano's fluid storytelling."--Booklist "Haunting, ambiguous, and more universal than one might expect... Honeymoon is shaped by the imperfections and subjectivity of knowledge, and by WWII, the black hole of French memory."--Publishers Weekly

Patrick Modiano was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature for a body of work that includes Missing Person and Honeymoon (both published by Godine).
