OOMB, insightful and accurate as usual. Interestingly enough, the very first comment on the French literary forum Babelio about Dora Bruder (the book from which that little excerpt of 'well crafted reportage' came from) ends this way:

One can be closed to this style, have the feeling that Modiano repeats himself, rewrites over and over the same story, his story. Of course. But, as far as I'm concerned, it crushes me every time, or almost every time. Oh well, de gustibus....

On peut-etre hermetique a ce style, avoir le sentiment que Modiano se repete, reecrit sans cesse la meme histoire, son histoire. Certainement. Mais pourtant moi, il me chavire a chaque fois ou presque. Ha, les gouts et les couleurs
