Patrick Modiano opens Dora Bruder by telling how in 1988 he stumbled across an ad in the personal columns of the New Year's Eve 1941 edition of Paris Soir. Placed by the parents of a 15-year-old Jewish girl, Dora Bruder, who had run away from her Catholic boarding school, the ad sets Modiano off on a quest to find out everything he can about Dora and why, at the height of German reprisals, she ran away on a bitterly cold day from the people hiding her. He finds only one other official mention of her name on a list of Jews deported from Paris to Auschwitz in September 1942. With no knowledge of Dora Bruder aside from these two records, Modiano continues to dig for fragments from Dora's past. What little he discovers in official records and through remaining family members, becomes a meditation on the immense losses of the peroid—lost people, lost stories, and lost history. Modiano delivers a moving account of the ten-year investigation that took him back to the sights and sounds of Paris under the Nazi Occupation and the paranoia of the Pétain regime as he tries to find connections to Dora. In his efforts to exhume her from the past, Modiano realizes that he must come to terms with the specters of his own troubled adolescence. The result, a montage of creative and historical material, is Modiano's personal rumination on loss, both memoir and memorial.

"Missing a young girl, Dora Bruder, 15, height 1.55m, oval-shaped face, grey-brown eyes, grey sports jacket, maroon pullover, navy blue skirt and hat, brown gym shoes. All information to M. and Mme Bruder, 41 Boulevard Ornano, Paris." The author chanced upon this notice in a December 1941 issue of Paris Soir. The girl has vanished from the convent school which had taken her in during the Occupation. She had apparently run away on a bitterly cold night at a time of especially violent German reprisals. Moved by her fate, the author sets out to find all he can about her. Eventually he discovers her name in a list of Jews deported to Auschwitz in September 1942 and what further fragments he is able to uncover about the Bruder family become a meditation on the immense losses of the period - people lost, stories lost, human history lost. Modiano delivers a moving survey of a decade-long investigation that revived for him the sights, sounds and sorrowful rhythms of occupied Paris. And in seeking to exhume Dora Bruder's fate, he in turn faces, and must come to terms with, his own family history.

This is the first in-depth study of the twelve Modiano texts specifically concerned with life-writing in autobiographical and biographical-cum-historiographical projects. The texts covered range fromLa Place de l'étoile (1968) through to La Petite Bijou (2001). Close textual analysis is combined with a theoretical approach based on current thinking in autobiography, biography, and reader-response. Modiano's use of autofiction and biofiction is analysed in the light of his continuing obsession with both personal trauma and History, as well as his problematic relationship with his paternally-inherited Jewish links. His view of identity (of self and other) is thus discussed in relation to a particular literary and socio-historical context– French, postmodern, post-World War II, and post-Holocaust.

Conceived as a second edition to Kawakami's acclaimed A Self-Conscious Art, which was the first full-length study in English of Patrick Modiano's work, this book has been comprehensively updated with two new chapters, notably discussing the author's recent work and his Nobel Prize win. Kawakami shows how by parodying precursors such as Proust or the nouveau romanciers, Modiano's narratives are built around a profound lack of faith in the ability of writing to retrieve the past through memory, and this failure is acknowledged in the discreet playfulness that characterises his novels. This welcome update on the work of one of the most successful modern French novelists will be essential reading for scholars working on contemporary French writing.

" J'ignorerai toujours à quoi elle passait ses journées, où elle se cachait, en compagnie de qui elle se trouvait pendant les mois d'hiver de sa première fugue et au cours des quelques semaines de printemps où elle s'est échappée à nouveau. C'est là son secret. Un pauvre et précieux secret que les bourreaux, les ordonnances, les autorités dites d'occupation, le Dépôt, les casernes, les camps, l'Histoire, le temps - tout ce qui vous souille et vous détruit - n'auront pas pu lui voler.

PREMIO NOBEL PER LA LETTERATURA 2014. «Questo libro nasce da uno scacco: si muove nel vuoto, si agita nel vuoto, attraversa il vuoto, interroga il vuoto, viene deluso dal vuoto; ma da questo scacco nasce la sua bellezza.» Pietro Citati «Un racconto esemplare cui fa da sfondo la sinistra Parigi dell’occupazione e da primo piano il ritratto di un’adolescente tenera e misteriosa come Anna Frank.» Corrado Augias «Un grande libro... ecco uno scrittore contemporaneo che tenta un’impresa impossibile ma indispensabile: tenere vivo il legame con l’orrore del nostro passato recente.» Le Monde 31 dicembre 1941. Sul «Paris-Soir» appare un annuncio: si cercano notizie di una ragazza di quindici anni, il suo nome è Dora Bruder. A denunciarne la scomparsa sono i genitori, ebrei emigrati da tempo in Francia. Quasi cinquant’anni dopo Patrick Modiano si imbatte in quelle poche righe di giornale, in quella richiesta d’aiuto rimasta sospesa. Non sa niente di Dora, ma ne è ugualmente attratto: cerca di ricostruirne la vita, i motivi che l’hanno fatta scappare, cerca di immaginare le sue giornate nel periodo della fuga. A poco a poco ricompone la storia dei Bruder: la nascita della ragazza, le origini dei genitori, i loro trasferimenti, l’ultimo domicilio della famiglia. Modiano segue l’ombra di Dora per le vie di una città che conosce e ama, la Parigi dei quartieri periferici, degli hotel ormai chiusi da tempo, dei cinema che non esistono più. Sono luoghi che hanno vissuto la guerra e conosciuto l’atmosfera sinistra dell’occupazione. L’atmosfera in cui vive la stessa Dora fino a quando, otto mesi dopo la fuga, verrà deportata ad Auschwitz insieme al padre. Qui, dove comincia la Storia degli uomini, si chiude per sempre la storia privata di Dora in mezzo a quella di milioni di altre vittime. Dora Bruder è fuggita, poi è riapparsa, ma sin dall’inizio ha mantenuto il segreto su quel breve periodo. Forse la sua è stata una fuga d’amore, o forse no, non lo sapremo mai con certezza. E proprio grazie a questo atto di disobbedienza, a questo scatto di libertà, la sua memoria non è caduta nell’oblio e rivive ora nel ritratto intenso e commovente che Modiano lascia di lei per sempre.
