I really enjoyed this story by France s 2014 winner of the Nobel prize I found the story riveting in the sense that I could have read it in a sitting although I didn tThe main character has what many folks especially young people would consider a dream job he travels around the world with a crew making documentary films They are finishing up a project in Brazil and for the next one they will trace the route of 1931 auto expedition across Asia Yet he s disillusioned by this work and feels the need to grow up Some of his disillusionment is surely related to his marital situation He knows his wife is having an affair with one of the crew and she knows he knows On and off they try to get back together even though it seems he doesn t hold her in very high esteem At one point she writes him a note and he thinks and what would their marriage counselor think of this On the envelopeI recognized one of the ualities I most admired in my wife the beautiful big handwriting of the illiterate that she was An intermediary sent by his wife tells him She s afraid you re going to involve her in an adventure that leads nowhereShe told me that she isn t twenty any The real story begins while he s in a hotel in Milan He happens to hear from the concierge that a French woman from Paris had committed suicide in the hotel last night When he returns to Paris he learns about the event and he realizes that he knew this woman and her husband twenty years ago when he was a youth back packing across Europe The woman who killed herself was about twenty years older than the young man She was a teen ager during WW II and the Nazi occupation of France Although the boy and the woman were not lovers he seems obsessed with her now that she is gone He recalls that The contact of her arm and shoulder gave me an impression I had never yet had that of finding myself under someone s protection She would be the first person who could help me The woman s death triggers something in him He disappears when he was supposed to be flying with the crew to Rio He leaves no word with his wife or friends And he has no other family He hides out in suburban Paris and starts tracking down her life and writing a biography of her which he had actually started and set aside long before her death We imagine it might eventually turn into a documentary He goes through old records and newspaper articles tracking down where she lived So I don t introduce any spoilers I won t reveal what he finds out about her other than that she and her father a doctor were underground in Paris during the Nazi occupation The author never tells us specifically why but he gives us enough clues to uickly figure it outThere is good writing and humor Here s a scene when he is hanging out on the patio at the house of the woman and her husband in Provence and they are trying to avoid pesky neighbors If they come right up to us we ll just have to pretend to be asleep he the husband saidAnd if they tap us on the shoulder to wake us up I askedWell in that case we ll pretend to be dead she the wife said Some of Modiano s writing is uasi autobiographical Apparently a recurring theme in his novels is a young man whose parents sent him off to boarding schools to get rid of him as is the case in this story This was true of Modiano himself It s recalled in a line made by the woman after she and her husband picked him up hitchhiking When I saw you by the side of the road this morning I wondered whether you had parents A good story and a fairly uick read almost a novella But I should also say it s my preference to give this a 5 the overall GR rating is 37 good but not great Top photo of Paris by Steve Whiston from gettyimagescomPhoto of Nazi occupied Paris from apitimecomThe author from wikimediaorgwikipediacommons

Read Voyage de noces Patrick Modiano Ò 2 Review Review Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Patrick Modiano Ilor nazisti Astfel scoate treptat la iveala o viata secreta plina de indoieli si incertitudini petrecuta din ascunzatoare in ascunzatoare Deconstructia cronologica a biografiei personajelor la care Modiano exceleaza ii lasa cititorului placerea de a reface parcursul liniar al existentei lor. I first heard of Patrick Modiano in a Times review from December 15 Modiano won the Nobel Prize in 2014 and a translation of Modiano s autobiography was being reviewed along with four of his other books Despite that the review doesn t mention Honeymoon at all It turns out he is uite prolific although most of his English translations have come out since winning the Nobel Instead I picked my first Modiano from a tripadvisor post on the topic fiction set in Provence and C te d Azur Yes I am one of those typesIndeed Honeymoon is partly set in the C te d Azur town of Juan les pins A rootless young man hitches a ride with a couple in their forties In the effortless manner of a Murakami novel he is swept along on a sort of honeymoon He finds himself tagging along with them on an errand and then to their villa on the beach one follows the signpost Tahiti Moorea He falls asleep exhausted and feels contented for what he claims is the first time in his life He hints at an unhappy childhood His gracious hosts a man named Rigaud and his wife Ingrid n e Teyrsen are polite partial to wry asides and maybe a little bit eccentric They take the young man under their wing finally sending him on his way back to Paris after secretly slipping some money into his suitcase Honeymoon takes place in three distinct periods sometimes forcing you to do a bit of math to figure out the ages of different characters Also the narrator s subplot and numerous references to street names and neighborhoods can be distracting But the mystery of M et Mme Rigaud was compelling enough to hold on to me You too may feel some of that contentment that our narrator felt on the beach that day when reading about them Don t be too complacent of course This idyll is tinged with melancholy One of Modiano s themes is the impenetrability of France s wartime past The shadow of the occupation falls even on the sunny beaches of Juan les pins and St Tropez The review lit picks
