About this title


Patrick Modiano has now achieved the rare distinction of being both a best-selling novelist and the object of widespread critical acclaim. In his early works, he was one of the first writers to insist on discussing France's collaboration with the Nazis during the the Second World War (1940-1944), thus helping to undermine the Gaullist myth of a unified resistance to the occupation of France. In this analysis of Modiano's first novel, La place de l'etoile (1968), O'Keefe probes the nature of the Parisian author's success by approaching the novel within a structuralist framework inspired by the eminent critic, Michael Riffaterre. O'Keefe concludes that La place de l'etoile, rife with disturbing insights and complexities, serves as a matrix to the understanding of Modiano's oeuvre.

About the Author:
