Memory. The power of the past over the present can be overwhelming, and it is memory that makes the past immediate. I picked up Patrick Modiano’s novellas after he won the Nobel Prize in Literature last year. Titled, Suspended Sentences, these novellas present meditations and reflections on the Paris of the past, and the ways in which incomplete memories leave gaps in our experience of the present. Readers who like fiction that sets a mood and offers descriptive atmospheric language are likely to enjoy reading this collection, as are those readers who enjoy fiction that leads to personal reflection, especially about memories of the past.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
