Read full description of the books L'erba delle notti:

Jean è uno scrittore solitario che fatica a distinguere il presente dal passato, i ricordi veri da quelli immaginari. Eppure non ha sognato: sul suo vecchio taccuino nero degli anni Sessanta sono infatti annotati nomi, numeri di telefono, date di appuntamenti, e persino brevi testi «che forse hanno a che fare con la letteratura». Fra questi nomi spicca quello di Dannie, una ragazza dalle molteplici identità che riceve misteriose lettere al fermoposta e della quale Jean è invaghito; e poi tutta la banda di loschi personaggi che frequentano locali equivoci come l'Unic Hôtel o «il 66» vicino ai giardini del Luxembourg, teatro di frequenti retate notturne. Cosí, riaffiorano alla mente dettagli incompiuti, segreti mai svelati, misteri irrisolti: perché la polizia lo aveva interrogato? Cos'era successo al pianoterra di quell'appartamento sul lungosenna? C'è forse un legame con la guerra d'Algeria e l'affare Ben Barka? E poi, quale significato attribuire alle parole di Dannie e, soprattutto, alla sua improvvisa scomparsa? La verità è lì a un passo, a portata di mano, eppure irraggiungibile. Ogni libro di Patrick Modiano fa eco al precedente e crea un insieme coerente e al tempo stesso sempre nuovo. Tutti i suoi romanzi e racconti, pur diversi, evocano in qualche modo una ricerca incessante, partendo da un dettaglio minimo per sondare il passato nel tentativo di ricostruire un'identità e non perdersi nell'oblio. Anche L'erba delle notti non fa eccezione: un Modiano allo stato puro, con la sua magnifica frase musicale regolare e densa come lo scorrere della Senna.

Read information about the author

Ebook L'erba delle notti read Online! Patrick Modiano is a French language novelist and winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature.

He is a winner of the Grand prix du roman de l'Académie française in 1972, the Prix Goncourt in 1978 for his novel Rue des boutiques obscures and of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2014.

Modiano's parents met in occupied Paris during World War II and began their relationship in semi-clandestinity. Modiano's childhood took place in a unique atmosphere: between the absence of his father -- of which he heard many troubled stories -- and his mother's frequent tours, he had to complete his secondary education by government aid. This brought him closer to his brother, Rudy, who died of a disease at age 10 (the works of Patrick Modiano from 1967 to 1982 are dedicated to him). This disappearance announced the end of the author's childhood, who continued to hold a marked nostalgia for this period.

Modiano studied at the École du Montcel primary school in Jouy-en-Josas, at the Collège Saint-Joseph de Thônes in Haute-Savoie, and then at the Lycée Henri-IV high school in Paris. While he was at Henri-IV, he took geometry lessons from writer Raymond Queneau, who was a friend of Modiano's mother. He received his baccalaureate at Annecy but didn't proceed with his higher education.

His meeting with Queneau, the author of Zazie dans le métro, is crucial. Modiano was introduced to the literary world by Queneau, and this gave him the opportunity to attend a cocktail party given by publishing house Éditions Gallimard. He published his first novel, La Place de l’Étoile, with them in 1968, after having read the manuscript to Raymond Queneau. Starting that year, he did nothing but write.

On September 12, 1970, Modiano married Dominique Zerhfuss. "I have a catastrophic souvenir of the day of our marriage. It rained. A real nightmare. Our groomsmen were Queneau, who had mentored Patrick since his adolescence, and Malraux, a friend of my father. They started to argue about Dubuffet, and it was like we were watching a tennis match! That said, it would have been funny to have some photos, but the only person who had a camera forgot to bring the film. There is only one photo remaining of us, from behind and under an umbrella!" (Interview with Elle, 6 October 2003). From their marriage came two girls, Zina (1974) and Marie (1978).

Modiano has mentioned on Oct 9, 2014, during an interview with La Grande Librairie, that one of the books which had a great impact on his writing life was 'Le cœur est un chasseur solitaire' (The Heart is a Lonely Hunter), the first novel published by Carson McCullers in 1940.
