Ing st Modiano has an annoyingly imprecise writing style He alludes and hints but never makes things explicit Some of the details seem extraneous Character development is very superficial The type of philosophical discussion typical of authors like Hesse is completely missing Finally the novel is provincial in the sense that it seems to be directed at a French readership intimately familiar with Parisian streets and landmarksThe style reminds me of the stereotypical French movie endless talking and smoking but no actionI am iving the novel three stars because it does accomplish a continuous time shift between France in the time of the narrator and the Vichy period I first heard of Patrick Modiano in a Times review from December 15 Modiano won the Nobel Prize in 2014 and a translation of Modiano s autobiography was being reviewed along with four of his other books Despite that the review doesn t mention Honeymoon at all It turns out he is uite prolific although most of his English translations have come out since winning the Nobel Instead I picked my first Modiano from a tripadvisor post on the topic fiction set in Provence and C te d Azur Yes I am one of those typesIndeed Honeymoon is partly set in the C te d Azur town of Juan les pins A rootless young man hitches a ride with a couple in their forties In the effortless manner of a Murakami novel he is swept along on a sort of honeymoon He finds himself tagging along with them on an errand and then to their villa on the beach one follows the signpost Tahiti Moorea He falls asleep exhausted and feels contented for what he claims is the first time in his life He hints at an unhappy childhood His racious hosts a man named Rigaud and his wife Ingrid n e Teyrsen are polite partial to wry asides and maybe a little bit eccentric They take the young man under their wing finally sending him on his way back to Paris after secretly slipping some money into his suitcase Honeymoon takes place in three distinct periods sometimes forcing you to do a bit of math to figure out the ages of different characters Also the narrator s subplot and numerous references to street names and neighborhoods can be distracting But the mystery of M et Mme Rigaud was compelling enough to hold on to me You too may feel some of that contentment that our narrator felt on the beach that day when reading about them Don t be too complacent of course This idyll is tinged with melancholy One of Modiano s themes is the impenetrability of France s wartime past The shadow of the occupation falls even on the sunny beaches of Juan les pins and St Tropez The review lit picks I really enjoyed this story by France s 2014 winner of the Nobel prize I found the story riveting in the sense that I could have read it in a sitting although I didn tThe main character has what many folks especially young people would consider a dream job he travels around the world with a crew making documentary films They are finishing up a project in Brazil and for the next one they will trace the route of 1931 auto expedition across Asia Yet he s disillusioned by this work and feels the need to row up Some of his disillusionment is surely related to his marital situation He knows his wife is having an affair with one of the crew and she knows he knows On and off they try to Once a Wicked Lady: A Biography of Margaret Lockwood get back together even though it seems he doesn t hold her in very high esteem At one point she writes him a note and he thinks and what would their marriage counselor think of this On the envelopeI recognized one of the ualities I most admired in my wife the beautiful big handwriting of the illiterate that she was An intermediary sent by his wife tells him She s afraid you reoing to involve her in an adventure that leads nowhereShe told me that she isn t twenty any The real story begins while he s in a hotel in Milan He happens to hear from the concierge that a French woman from Paris had committed suicide in the hotel last night When he returns to Paris he learns about the event and he realizes that he knew this woman and her husband twenty years ago when he was a youth back packing across Europe The woman who killed herself was about twenty years older than the young man She was a teen ager during WW II and the Nazi occupation of France Although the boy and the woman were not lovers he seems obsessed with her now that she is Forbidden Reading gone He recalls that The contact of her arm and shoulderave me an impression I had never yet had that of finding myself under someone s protection She would be the first person who help me The woman s death triggers something in him He disappears when he was supposed "To Be Flying With The Crew To Rio He Leaves " be flying with the crew to Rio He leaves word with his wife or friends And he has no other family He hides out in suburban Paris and starts tracking down her life and writing a biography of her which he had actually started and set aside long before her death We imagine it might eventually turn into a documentary He oes through old records and newspaper articles tracking down where she lived So I don t introduce any Spoilers I Won T I won t what he finds out about her other than that she and her father a doctor were underground in Paris during the Nazi occupation The author never tells us specifically why but he ives us enough clues to uickly figure it outThere is ood writing and humor Here s a scene when he is hanging out on the patio at the house of the woman and her husband in Prove. S a instalat el Intrigat descopera ca i a cunoscut nu numai pe femeie ci si pe sotul ei cu douazeci de ani in urma si misterul destinului lor ajunge sa l obsedeze Hotaraste sa mearga pe urmele acestei perechi care in timpul razboiului fusese nevoita sa se refugieze permanent din fata ocupant.
