It was announced this morning that Patrick Modiano won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Modiano won the award for the “art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation of France during World War II.”
Wow! He is called the Marcel Proust of Our Time.
