Críticas:

"Vividly translated by Mark Polizzotti ... [and] as good a place as any to enter the long, slow-moving river of Modiano's fiction."-Alan Riding, New York Times Book Review -- Alan Riding New York Times Book Review "Haunting... Modiano combines a detective's curiosity with an elegist's melancholy."-Adam Kirsch, New Republic -- Adam Kirsch New Republic "A timely glimpse at [Modiano's] fixations ... In Mark Polizzotti's spare and elegant translation, the writing conveys a sense of dreamy unease in which the real, the hypothesized, and the half-forgotten blend into a shimmering vagueness."-Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal -- Sam Sacks Wall Street Journal "Mr. Modiano writes clear, languid, and urbane sentences in Mr. Polizzotti's agile translation ... these novellas have a mood. They cast a spell."-Dwight Garner, New York Times -- Dwight Garner New York Times "Elegant ... quietly unpretentious, approachable ... Though enigmatic and open-ended, Modiano's remembrances of things past and his probings of personal identity are presented with a surprisingly light touch. He is, all in all, quite an endearing Nobelist."-Michael Dirda, Washington Post -- Michael Dirda Washington Post "The three novellas that make up this exquisite collection are mysteries, albeit mysteries of an existential sort."-David L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times -- David L. Ulin Los Angeles Times "[A] trilogy of novellas from the recent French Nobel Prize winner... Fictions with a moral bite, depicting a world in which everyone, it seems, is complicit in crimes not yet specified. Moody, elegant and dour."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Kirkus Reviews "An excellent place to begin... Here is the bracing darkness at the heart of Modiano's vision of memory and modern day Paris, ... a traveling back to travel forward, a journey these novellas pace with the elegance of a solitary walker, moving through a city's streets, his collar up against the cold."-John Freeman, Boston Globe -- John Freeman Boston Globe "Compelling... Haunting... Modiano's unconventional accounts of vanished hours show how the urge to solve a long-lost crime, or to reclaim forgotten memories, ultimately leads to inscrutable vanishing points."-Scott Esposito, San Francisco Chronicle -- Scott Esposito San Francisco Chronicle "Brilliant"-New York Magazine "Approval Matrix" New York Magazine "Approval Matrix" "There are few modern writers as pleasurable or interesting to read. Modiano is one of the great writers of our time."-David Herman, Jewish Chronicle -- David Herman Jewish Chronicle "Mesmerizing ... evocative and nostalgic ... These are stories that continue to haunt, even after the final page ... For English-language readers, this collection serves as the discovery of a unique, masterful writer."-Gila Wertheimer, Chicago Jewish Star -- Gila Wertheimer Chicago Jewish Star "[A] welcome translation ... [Modiano's] stories include suspenseful passages and are invariably absorbing ... and offer much to ponder as one proceeds."-John Taylor, Arts Fuse -- John Taylor Arts Fuse "These three atmospheric novellas demonstrate the range of reading pleasure afforded by Modiano's approach and the dark romance of his Paris... Each first-person novella is also a portrait of the artist."-Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly "Beautiful and fascinating"-M.A. Orthofer, Complete Review -- M.A. Orthofer Complete Review "In poetic prose, Modiano evokes a Paris that no longer exists, yet lingers in the light and shadows of memory."-Jane Ciabattari, BBC.com -- Jane Ciabattari BBC.com "The three novellas in Suspended Sentences offer a vivid glimpse into Modiano's photographic remembrance of things past."-Brandon Ambrosino, Vox -- Brandon Ambrosino Vox "Striking and poignant."-Kacy Muir, Weekender -- Kacy Muir Weekender "Like [W.G.] Sebald, Modiano blends fact and fiction, memoir and reportage ... obsessed with unearthing lives buried under the avalanche of time."-Ryu Spaeth, the Week -- Ryu Spaeth the Week "A series of meditations on the mutability of memory ... [that] accumulates force quietly and veers without warning into the dark precincts of Modiano's life... The writing, translated crisply by Mark Polizzotti, is laced with investigations and speculations, false leads and dead ends."-Bill Morris, Daily Beast -- Bill Morris Daily Beast "Reading Modiano is like experiencing a very specific flavor you don't encounter every day-saffron or asafetida, say. He's direct and precise, but also gently melancholy, like the squeezed essence of passing time. Mark Polizzotti's translation expertly catches the timbre of his voice."-Luc Sante -- Luc Sante "Haunting. Like a master perfumer, Nobel Prize winner Patrick Modiano has crafted a signature scent: his unmistakable blend of nostalgia, grief, love, disquiet, Paris. In any translation, exotic decor comes easy but to capture the atmosphere of the words is much harder - Polizzotti succeeds beautifully in creating the impalpable magic of Modiano's world in English."-Damion Searls -- Damion Searls "Completely, insouciantly, Modiano describes the interiors and essential matter of the French literary imagination. In these fictions, the sworn bewilderment of intimacy as cause and quest and actual topography of narrative becomes an inexhaustible source. And from that source there flows a riverine voice of legends and documentary legerdemain: always candid, always fitly perplexed. In the three novellas gathered as Suspended Sentences, this voice elapses across Paris as it never was, yet somehow must have been. Otherwise, there could be no accounting for acrobats, for Edith Piaf, for collaboration and liberation and the spring of 1968. All of these and more Modiano addresses with a luminous bewilderment more intimately exacting and more precise than any certainty could be."-Donald Revell, Author of Pennyweight Windows: New & Selected Poems -- Donald Revell "The three novellas included in this volume by this year's Nobel Prize winner Patrick Modiano offer eloquent testimony to the writer's remarkable gift for evoking the power of the past over human lives and destinies, and the ephemeral and ultimately mysterious nature of human relationships. They also capture Modiano's unrivaled ability to describe in limpid and haunting prose the power of a place, Paris, and to make its history and geography come alive in new and unexpected ways. Beautifully translated by Mark Polizzotti, this small volume will familiarize Anglophone readers with the talent and genius of France's best- kept literary secret."-Richard J. Golsan, Texas A&M University -- Richard J. Golsan "The Nobel Prize committee's abrupt elevation of Patrick Modiano to international prominence makes the publication of these three works particularly valuable; not only has very little of the author's work appeared in English, but Mark Polizzotti's long experience as editor, publisher, and translator, together with his truly astonishing familiarity with the French language, has advantageously equipped him to execute his finely-tuned English renderings of these discreetly complex texts. Modiano belongs to one of the great traditions of French fiction, inaugurated by Madame de Lafayette's The Princess of Cleves, continued (this is a very short list) in Marivaux's novels, later in Laclos's Dangerous Liaisons and Flaubert's Three Tales and A Sentimental Education, in the 20th century variously developed by its three great Raymonds - Radiguet, Roussel, and Queneau - and, greatest of all, Marcel Proust, and in our own time flourishing anew in the pages of Patrick Modiano and Jean Echenoz. To the thousands of French readers of Modiano, declaring him a great writer is obvious, necessary, and inexplicable: he and his tradition depend on intimacy, precision, and a ruthless avoidance of reassuring conclusions - that is, modest qualities. Modiano's tales are mostly centered on life in outlying parts of Paris during and after World War II; place and time are rendered with alluring exactness, as are their fugitive inhabitants, and all are then inevitably lost in a blur of evanescent clues that leave nothing but an hallucinatory melancholy behind: a melancholy that enchants a rediscovered world with mysterious, hopeless magic. Modiano has said of his work, "I have always felt that I've been writing the same book for the past 45 years"; but each novel is unflaggingly fresh, with writing of exemplary purity, depending on nothing but itself for the reality it creates. Now, with Suspended Sentences in hand, you can enter this hauntingly vivid new world. I strongly urge you not to let the opportunity pass you by."-Harry Mathews -- Harry Mathews Patrick Modiano is the winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature Nobel Prize in Literature "Patrick Modiano, that great chronicler of lost souls, is at his masterful best in these three linked short novels, which have been expertly translated by Mark Polizzotti. Memories of places and people from the narrator's childhood and youth mingle across the years, together with the searing sense that he will never fully understand his own past, nor the stories of his elusive parents, in a Parisi he remembers as still haunted by ghosts of World War II. No living author has rendered the melancholy of incomplete histories and 'suspended sentences' more beautifully than Modiano. Already a revered author in France, he is sure to gain world-wide admiration and enthusiastic readers as a result of his well-deserved Nobel Prize for Literature."-Susan Rubin Suleiman, Harvard University; author of Crises of Memory and the Second World War -- Susan Rubin Suleiman "These novellas resemble a cross between metaphysical mystery stories and lyrical memoir. Modiano is at his best when his narrators-are they three separate narrators or perhaps only one and the same?-conjure up a remembered childhood inflected by historical figures and real places, from Violette Noziere and Robert Capa to the Drancy transit camp and the Quai d'Austerlitz in Paris. All three stories set the recall of a personal past within the twilight world of elusive father in whose footsteps Modiano's narrators seem forever to be following. Mark Polizzotti's translation catches the tone and lilt of a singu...

Descripción Yale University Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 196 x 124 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A trio of intertwined novellas from the 2014 Nobel laureate for literature In this essential trilogy of novellas by the winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature, French author Patrick Modiano reaches back in time, opening the corridors of memory and exploring the mysteries to be encountered there. Each novella in the volume--Afterimage, Suspended Sentences, and Flowers of Ruin-represents a sterling example of the author s originality and appeal, while Mark Polizzotti s superb English-language translations capture not only Modiano s distinctive narrative voice but also the matchless grace and spare beauty of his prose. Although originally published separately, Modiano s three novellas form a single, compelling whole, haunted by the same gauzy sense of place and characters. Modiano draws on his own experiences, blended with the real or invented stories of others, to present a dreamlike autobiography that is also the biography of a place. Orphaned children, mysterious parents, forgotten friends, enigmatic strangers-each appears in this three-part love song to a Paris that no longer exists.Shadowed by the dark period of the Nazi Occupation, these novellas reveal Modiano s fascination with the lost, obscure, or mysterious: a young person s confusion over adult behavior; the repercussions of a chance encounter; the search for a missing father; the aftershock of a fatal affair. To read Modiano s trilogy is to enter his world of uncertainties and the almost accidental way in which people find their fates. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780300198058
