Very good points, Tudwell. In my defense, I read Modiano many years ago, and the bits I quoted were the ones that stuck in my memory, and memories are capricious things. For example, all I remember of Quo Vadis are the Petronius Arbiter parts.

In any case, this year's Nobel prize has done something good: it brought to the attention of many readers a very interesting writer. At our sister site (the World Wrestling Literature Forum) most of the regulars who gave Modiano a chance have been pleasantly surprised. And one of the good things about Modiano is that even if all his books resemble each other a little bit, they're different enough to reward an extensive exploration of his oeuvre.
