Nobel Prize for Literature winner Modiano's recently translated work is a demanding novella. Narrator Bronson Pinchot's soft, clear voice and measured pacing allow the listener time to absorb the twists of plot and time that are major elements in this story of self-discovery. On the surface, the book focuses on reclusive French author Jean Darange and how the return of his lost address book triggers lost memories of his youth, including knowledge of a murder. But Modiano is renowned for the depth and complexity of his themes, plots, and characters, and this offering does not disappoint. Pinchot's deftness with accents and subtle modifications of tone highlights his portrayals of Modiano's multilayered characters. Listeners who enjoy a challenge will find this unique offering enjoyable. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
