In 2014, Patrick Modiano was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. The Swedish Academy cited “the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the Occupation,” calling him “a Marcel Proust of our time.” "Modiano is an ideal writer to gorge on ... in part because [his books] make up a system as beguiling and complete as any in contemporary literature ... [So You Don't Get Lost in the Neighborhood] set[s] up a moody, delectable noir" (The New Yorker).
