Novel from the notable French writer Patrick Modiano, a tale of travel and disillusionment and the ways we view, make, and remember the way we see ourselves in the world. The plot follows a filmmaker whose seemingly glamorous and international job wrought the irrepressible need to abandon his life, wife, and career to chase tragic figures from his past into holed-up hotels and the memories that continue to haunt his vision––as themes from this novel have haunted Modiano's semi-autobiographical, self-aware and recurrently self-destructive body of work.
