Rue des boutiques obscures by Patrick Modiano( Book )
111 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For ten years Guy Roland has lived without a past. His current life and name were given to him by his recently retired boss, Hutte, who welcomed him, a one-time client, into his detective agency. Guy makes full use of Hutte's files - directories, yearbooks, and papers of all kinds going back half a century - but leads to his former life are few. Could he really be that person in a photograph, a young man remembered by some as a South American attache? Or was he someone else, perhaps the disappeared scion of a prominent local family? He interviews strangers and is tantalized by half-clues until, at last, he grasps a thread that leads him through the maze of his own repressed experience." "On one level Missing Person is a detective thriller, a 1950s film noir mix of smoky cafes, illegal passports, and insubstantial figures crossing bridges in the fog. On another level, it is also a haunting meditation on the nature of the self."--Jacket

43 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the first French films to address the issue of collaboration during the German Occupation, Louis Malle's brave and controversial Lacombe Lucien traces a young peasant's journey from potential Resistance member to Gestapo recruit.

Voyage de noces : roman by Patrick Modiano( Book )
43 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jean 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.--Back cover

Dimanches d'août : roman by Patrick Modiano( Book )
38 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Modiano est un enchanteur. L'enchantement persiste, même si son grand talent ne doit pas grand chose à son style plutôt "maigre". L'intrigue niçoise importe peu: ce diamant gros comme la nostalgie (et qui sera volé) ne brille que des feux de la littérature. Pour Lisette Morin (dans ##Le Devoir## du 8 nov. 86, p. C-3), l'oeuvre est un "polar sophistiqué et inclassable". Autre point de vue: J. Folch-Ribas, ##La Presse##, 15 nov. 1980, p. E2
