Personal Quote:

I often have the impression that the book I've just finished isn't satisfied, that it rejects me because I haven't successfully completed it. Because there is no going back, I'm forced to begin a new book so I can finally complete the previous one. And so, I take certain scenes and develop them more fully. These repetitions have a hypnotic quality, like a litany.


Parents with Dominique Zehrfuss, daughter of famous french architect Bernard Zehrfuss, of Zina Modiano and Marie Modiano. At the wedding the witnesses were André Malraux for her and Raymond Queneau for him. See more »
