1960's Paris, a mysterious girl, a group of shady characters, danger ... Modiano's folklore is set out from the beginning of The Black Notebook. And sheer magic follows once more -- Nelly Kaprielian * Vogue *
One can open this novel at any page, as if flicking through a collection of prose poems ... the smallest passage is enough to transport its reader. A rare, undefinable pleasure -- Norbert Czarny * Quinzaine Litteraire *
Modiano takes up his struggle with memory again, resuscitating people and places in one magnificent, impressionistic, tracking shot -- Marianne Payot * Express *
Modiano's characters are deliberately elusive, his settings, by contrast, scrupulously and atmospherically drawn -- Lucy Popescu * Financial Times *
A compelling meditation on identity and memory, and an evocative portrait of [Paris] * The Lady *
