9780857054913: Pedigree

Patrick Modiano's early life was defined by the remarkable loves and lives of his mercurial parents, and by a tragedy that left an indelible mark.

His mother, a beautiful Belgian who settled in Paris, struggled to find steady work as an actress, and her constant touring and auditioning left little time for looking after her two children. His father was an inveterate womaniser, who once stepped out with a former mistress of Lucky Luciano. He operated on the fringes of legality, running an import-export business from suspiciously opulent offices. His wartime activities had been murkier still.

But for all his parents' indifference, it is the death of his younger brother, when Modiano is eleven, that cuts deepest, leaving a wound that can never be healed.

Taking in a vast gallery of extraordinary characters from Paris' post-war years, Pedigree is at once a portrait of an age and of a childhood - a childhood replete with insecurity and sorrow that informed the oeuvre of France's new Nobel Laureate.

Recensione:

'A constant feeling of being in transit during a disastrous childhood and a wasted adolescence is certainly fairly common. But Modiano's strength lies in refusing to give his experience a literary slant; by not trying to explain or understand his father, or justify his mother, or even interpret his own reactions. This is what makes this book so unsettling and important' Le Monde Des Livres.

'Mondiano has managed to create a literary legacy that is both composed and remarkable, and Pedigree is its magnificent, poignant emblem' La Quinzaine Littéraire.

L'autore:

Patrick Modiano was born in Paris, France in 1945. He was the recipient of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature. He previously won the 2012 Austrian State Prize for European Literature, the 2010 Prix mondial Cino Del Duca from the Institut de France for lifetime achievement, the 1978 Prix Goncourt for Rue des boutiques obscures, and the 1972 Grand Prix du roman de l'Académie française for Les boulevards de ceinture.

It s a book less on what I did than on what others, mainly my parents, did to me Taking in a vast gallery of extraordinary characters from Paris post-war years, Pedigree is an autobiographical portrait of Post-War Paris and a tumultuous childhood - a childhood replete with insecurity and sorrow that informed the oeuvre of France s Nobel Laureate. With his sometime-actress mother and shady businessman father barely functioning in any parental role, the young Modiano spent his childhood being packed off to the care of others, or held at a safe distance in a grimy boarding school - which he ran away from several times. His impecunious mother had a heart of stone ; his womanising father once called the police when his son asked him for money, and later ceased all contact with him. But for all his parents indifference, it is the death of his younger brother when Modiano is eleven that cuts deepest, leaving a wound that can never be healed.
