From her name on a list of deportees to Auschwitz to the fragments he is able to uncover about the Bruder family, Modiano delivers a moving survey of a decade-long investigation that revived for him the sights, sounds and sorrowful rhythms of occupied Paris. And in seeking to exhume Dora Bruder's fate, he in turn faces his own family history.Translated by Joanna Kilmartin 'Absolutely magnificent' Le Monde

Modiano's crowning as the Nobel Prize-winner for Literature aptly sees its republication. And so it should -- Arifa Akbar * Independent *The most poignant, the strongest of all Patrick Modiano's works. From a small ad found in a Paris newspaper in 1941, the writer embarks on the hunt for a young Jewish girl Dora Bruder, a runaway who has disappeared into the dark night of the Occupation. Through this investigation, Modiano looks for Dora, but for his own father as well, also hiding in the Paris of that time. Absolutely magnificent. * Le Monde *An exceptional book * JORGE SEMPRUN *This book is both harrowing and admirable...quite simply shattering * RENAUD MATIGNON, Figaro *

Patrick Modiano was born in an outlying quarter of Paris in 1945. He published his first novel, La Place de l'Etoile, when he was 21, and has made a distinguished career as a novelist ever since, winning the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2014. He has won the Grand Prix du Roman de l'Academie Francaise and the Prix Goncourt. His fiction is haunted by the trauma of the German Occupation of France, and this subject also features in the screenplay of Lacombe Lucien which he wrote for the film director Louis Malle.Joanna Kilmartin is the translator and editor of Marcel Proust's Selected Letters: Volume Four, 1918-1922.
