When I was nineteen I had a huge crush on Katherine Mansfield. I loved her letters and journal and the tragedy of her short life moved me. So when I went to Paris, the city she loved above all others, I decided to try to find her. There was a hotel she always stayed in. She stayed there when she was happy and in love and she also stayed there when she knew she was going to die. It’s called The Select Hotel and I was excited to discover it’s still there, in the Place de la Sorbonne, not far from the Jardin du Luxembourg which she often wrote about in her letters. It’s quite a swanky hotel now but when I sat down by the fountain and looked up at its windows there was a moment of electrifying wonder when the past suddenly fused into the present moment and I wasn’t quite sure who was the ghost – was she a ghost from the past or was I a ghost from the future? At one point I thought there’s no way on earth Katherine Mansfield would ever have imagined that someone, almost a hundred years later, would be trying to picture her in her room (she always took the same room)… Even less would an ordinary Jewish French girl called Dora Brudner have imagined that one day in the future a Nobel Prize winning novelist would become obsessed with trying to piece together her life after she mysteriously ran away from a convent where we presume she was being sheltered during the Nazi occupation of Paris. Rarely do we get an insight into the first moment of inspiration that compels a writer to write a novel. Here we do. Modiano comes across a notice in an old newspaper asking for information about the missing Dora Brudner. He discovers a deep driving need to know her, or at least to know what happened to her. The book, reminiscent in many ways of the earlier The Quest for Corvo: An Experiment in Biography and Austerlitz and the later HHhH, becomes, on one level, a detective story and on a deeper level an intimate dialogue between the present and the past. The horrible irony, we quickly learn, is Dora’s parents hadn’t registered their daughter previously meaning she wasn’t on any Jewish list but in their desperation to find her eventually are compelled to document her as missing at the local police station. Thus she finds her way onto the Jewish register. As much as he is trying to fathom out Dora, Modiano is seeking out his own pre-history. During the novel he lets us know how many parallels exist between Dora and her family and himself and his own family. He is constantly aware of time and timing – how only timing prevented him, as a French Jew, from sharing Dora’s fate. The most moving achievement of this novel is Modiano’s refusal to turn Dora’s story into a novel. It’s almost an anti-novel in the sense that he rejects imagination as a tool for piecing together Dora’s fate. By giving us Dora exclusively through official documents it somehow made her fate much more heartbreaking than any fictional account of her life would have done. “The girls’ neighbours informed us that she frequently left home without wearing the insignia (the yellow star).” Who were those neighbours? Why did she refuse to wear the yellow star? We will never know. Modiano doesn’t allow us the pleasure of detailing our emotion. The emotion remains raw. There was a telling critique of all historical fiction and especially Holocaust fiction in this book. The sense that we’re always getting a sugared version of facts in fiction. This was raw and without solace and gives an amazingly vivid idea of what anyone searching for a Holocaust victim after the war must have gone through – especially the chilling matter-of-factness of bureaucratic documentation.

  3. Patrick Modiano is the winner of Nobel Prize for Literature this year 2014 And the Nobel Prize committee cited the following as the specialty of Modiano s writing for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life world of the occupation.Having read this book I can say that the Nobel Committee s statement about Modiano s writing is very true Personally speaking, the memory and the difficult past have been my favourite themes in the novels T [...]


  4. In usual style Modiano presents a snapshop of time and masters to unfold every detail in his melodic yet melancholic style This time though, the inspiration for his novel is bordering the depressing, it being a young girl, first believed to just have gone missing Later we find out that she met a much sinister fate This is about Vichy and I m not talking about the mineral water but of one of the darkest spots in French history.Rest in Peace, Dora Bruder.The below is taken from bbc history worldw [...]

  7. While reading Suspended Sentences Three Novellas, I was so strongly reminded of the films of Alain Resnais that I went back and watched a few of them I drew out the resonances in yesterday s column for 3 Quarks Daily Here I will simply say that Modiano s fiction addresses the same gaps in memory as Resnais s filmMuriel, or the time of return, locating these lacunae in an actual place in much the same way that the bombed out city of Boulogne was employed by the director to suggest impermanence Po [...]


  8. Fifteen year old Dora Bruder didn t survive the Holocaust Neither did her mother or father Forget the heroic stories of the French Resistance Here is the true face of France during World War 2 At no point in this brief, tragic book did poor Dora Bruder, lost to the conflagration of the Holocaust, come into contact with Germans Not until the doors of the train she was riding in opened in Auschwitz, that is.A French policeman randomly stopped her on the street to check if she was Jewish a French p [...]

  12. Dora Bruder is a little book about mostly nothing It s the story of a man who finds a girl s name in a newspaper, dated December 1941, French Occupation in full swing, and notes that he himself had once walked countless steps past the spot where this girl used to live So begins the link between Modiano and Dora, and Modiano s successive attempts to uncover of Dora s story The novel doesn t have a traditional narrative arc, and it s mostly composed of wanderings, of rememberings, always of, j ig [...]


  13. The Known and the UnknownI really wanted to quote the final paragraph of Modiano s novel, which is infinitely moving in its simplicity than anything that comes before But I will desist, and leave it for the reader to discover not because it gives away secrets, but because it does the opposite, preserving a secret for all time It is the one gift he can offer to the tragic subject of his writing, a teenage Jewish girl living in Paris at the time of the German Occupation.So failing that, let me co [...]

Custode del tempoSecondo libro consecutivo che leggo di Modiano lettura stimolata da quella breve ma intensa de L orizzonte e dall approssimarsi del giorno della memoria, e quindi dalla mia decisione di leggere sempre, in quei giorni, almeno un libro che parli e ricordi la Shoah Ma se la prima era stata una lettura inconsapevole di Modiano sapevo solo che aveva vinto il premio Nobel per la Letteratura e che era uno scrittore ebreo francese prima di iniziare Dora Bruder ho preferito leggere qualc [...]


  15. 1 It is not easy to describe such a work It lends itself to being read slowly and quietly in one sitting, and then ideally many times over the course of one s life, alongside the author s other works I think it is one of those writings which gains immense power over time This is a complex evocation of the terrible time lost Occupation as the narrator, Modiano, drifts from this Paris street to that one, from one building that is now demolished to a house where a childhood acquaintance once stayed [...]


  16. Dora Bruder, a Jewish teenager, runs away from a French convent school as the government is clamping down on the Jewish population The author learns about this incident from an old newspaper advertisement and tries to learn what he can about Bruder and her family In the process, he recalls his own memories of her Paris neighborhood Much of the book is a discourse on how little he can learn about Dora and what he must surmise The narrative is disjointed and emotional, and I think Sebald handles t [...]

Per la giornata della memoria volevo leggere qualcosa sull argomento e dato che non avevo ancora letto nulla di Modiano mi sembrata una buona occasione Ma non stato affatto come me l aspettavo nessuna storia inventata o reale di ragazzina deportata, ma una ricerca minuziosa per documentare un esistenza che altrimenti nessuno avrebbe ricordato, come tante altre finite nei campi di sterminio e nessuno che pu testimoniare E Il problema degli scomparsi, se non restituiamo volti, storie, nomi alla me [...]

  25. La fuga a quanto pare una richiesta di aiuto e in certi casi una forma di suicidio Ci non toglie che per qualche istante si provi una breve sensazione di eternit Oltre ai legami con il mondo avete rotto anche quelli con il tempo E capita che alla fine di una mattinata il cielo sia di un azzurro tenue e nulla abbia pi peso su di voi Le lancette dell orologio del giardino delle Tuileries si sono fermate per sempre Una formica impiega una vita ad attraversare una macchia di sole.Qui Modiano fugge, [...]


  26. You can read this small book 140 pages in a couple of hours, and you can summarize the content in a few sentences But I ve learned you have to be cautious with Modiano His seemingly simple stories, written in a very smooth style, hide a great complexity and the intensity of the stories can be quite heavy.In this book for instance there s the story of Dora Bruder, a jewish girl of 15, living in the Paris of 1941, during the occupation by the nazis She s revolting against her environment, but neve [...]

  30. L idea di fondo del libro abbastanza geniale parlare della pagina peggiore della nostra storia recente cercando di ripercorrere le vicende di una ragazzina, Dora, partendo dal suo annuncio di scomparsa trovato in un giornale del 1941.Modiano lo fa a modo suo, quasi da investigatore, mettendo insieme le informazioni un tassello alla volta Parigi, la cui toponomastica presente praticamente in ogni pagina, sembra ancora la vera protagonista.Non credo sia il suo capolavoro Ogni tanto si perde il fil [...]
