  • Anglais THE SEARCH WARRANT

    Patrick Modiano

    "Missing a young girl, Dora Bruder, 15, height 1.55m, oval-shaped face, grey-brown eyes, grey sports jacket, maroon pullover, navy blue skirt and hat, brown gym shoes. All information to M. and Mme Bruder, 41 Boulevard Ornano, Paris." The author chanced upon this notice in a December 1941 issue of Paris Soir. The girl has vanished from the convent school which had taken her in during the Occupation. She had apparently run away on a bitterly cold night at a time of especially violent German reprisals. Moved by her fate, the author sets out to find all he can about her. Eventually he discovers her name in a list of Jews deported to Auschwitz in September 1942 and what further fragments he is able to uncover about the Bruder family become a meditation on the immense losses of the period - people lost, stories lost, human history lost. Modiano delivers a moving survey of a decade-long investigation that revived for him the sights, sounds and sorrowful rhythms of occupied Paris. And in seeking to exhume Dora Bruder's fate, he in turn faces, and must come to terms with, his own family history.

    Patrick Modiano

    • Einaudi
    • 2 Février 2016

    Jean è uno scrittore solitario che fatica a distinguere il presente dal passato, i ricordi veri da quelli immaginari. Eppure non ha sognato: sul suo vecchio taccuino nero sono infatti annotati nomi, numeri di telefono, date di appuntamenti, e persino brevi testi «che forse hanno a che fare con la letteratura». Fra questi nomi spicca quello di Dannie, una ragazza dalle molteplici identità che riceve misteriose lettere al fermoposta e della quale Jean è invaghito; e poi tutta la banda di loschi personaggi che frequentano locali equivoci. Cosí, riaffiorano alla mente dettagli incompiuti, segreti mai svelati, misteri irrisolti: perché la polizia lo aveva interrogato? Cos'era successo al pianoterra di quell'appartamento sul lungosenna? C'è forse un legame con la guerra d'Algeria e l'affare Ben Barka? E poi, quale significato attribuire alle parole di Dannie e, soprattutto, alla sua improvvisa scomparsa? La verità è lí a un passo, a portata di mano, eppure irraggiungibile.
