Montparnasse Il avait alors t proche de Dannie jeune femme mle une affaire criminelle Livre L'Herbe des nuits par Patrick Modiano France Inter Livre L'Herbe des nu Conjuring with Names I believe you write somewhere that we live at the mercy of certain silences Patrick Modiano s work is built entirely on those certain silences things that may or may not have happened in the past and that leave only the faintest of clues behind them Clues that Jean a writer much like the author himself and narrator of this 2012 novella has written down in an old black notebook They consist mainly of names but with Modiano names are than enough Dannie Paul Chastagnier Aghamouri Duwelz G rard Marciano Georges the Unic H tel Rue du Montparnasse Over the first few pages this list of names will be repeated many times reordered annotated extended giving the reader a sense of d j vu before he has even read a complete chapter Modiano does not use names to inform the reader so much as to lull him into his own limbo where the present fuses with the past Modiano conjures with names and those names are of three types places fictional people and real onesEvery Modiano novel occupies its own particular topography You can follow his streets suares and metro stations on a map But the map for this book would be one that has altered over time Jean wanders the streets he had walked as a young man and notices the things that have changed the caf s that have disappeared the apartment buildings torn down the new towers taking their place And he goes back even further It was an obsession of mine he says to want to know what had occupied a given location in Paris over successive layers of time So he makes notes in the black notebook Sommet Brothers Leathers and PeltsBeaugency TanneriesA Martin Co Rawhide Hundred Maidens Hospital I no longer saw a very clear distinction between past and present he says of himself and he writes that way too Any one page may contain a description of what he is doing now in 2012 something he remembers doing in 1965 or something that he dreams of having done whether now or then Yes it is confusing but that is why one reads Modiano to share a confusion that closely mirrors one own fading memories shafts of understanding nostalgia and regret Brassa Passerby in the RainVery few of the fictional characters in this novella are central to the plot There is Jean the narrator of course and there is Dannie the young woman of 21 with whom he falls in love Much of his time though is spent waiting for Dannie while she conducts her mysterious errands picking up mail at a poste restante entering a building by one door and coming out by another removing documents from an apartment while its occupant is out He suspects that she may have a double or triple life and perhaps other names Aghamouri another of the names from that first list may see some of these other sides of her He is a Moroccan and indeed many of the others have connections to Morocco though mostly they remain in deep shadowBut one does not read Modiano for his fiction so much as his enigmatic brushes with history Almost all the dozen books I have read so far by him refer back to the German occupation of Paris in the Second World War during which Modiano suspects his father a Jew used his underworld contacts to aid the Gestapo But it seems that well has now run dry The only such reference here is a brief paragraph about bogus Resistance men shooting an innocent woman by mistake Set in 1965 this novella explorres the fallout from another war the Algerian War of Independence of 1954 62 For modern English speaking readers this episode may be little than a name but for Frenchmen of Modiano s generation it was a national trauma that forever changed the country They would also recognize the cause c l bre that underlies the entire book though never mentioned by name the abduction and presumed murder of Mehdi Ben Baraka a left wing Moroccan politician and associate of both Che Guevara and Malcolm X his disappearance has never been conclusively explained to this day Mehdi Ben BarakaThere is one further aspect of Modiano s use of names that intrigues me but which I cannot fully explain That is his use of real figures mostly dead as part of the intellectual landscape of his books In this novel it occurs partly in the subjects that Jean says interest him as a writer partly in the original people commemorated in his place names I found out for example that the writer of the song Dannie from which Jean s friend took her name and whom Jean bumps into a couple of times is the poet Jacues Audiberti but I don t know his work well enough to know what flavor he adds to the mix Other names that are repeated again and again are the late 19th century poet Tristan Corbi re the 18th century writer Restif de la Bretonne Baudelaire s mistress Jeanne Duval and the pseudonymous Baronne Blanche One connection that I suspect but cannot prove is that several of these figures may be of mixed race which might tie in with the Moroccan theme But of this I am sure Modiano does not sprinkle these names on casually but as a master chef handles his spices For those with the knowledge and the palate to savor them they must make an intriguing dish And even consumed in partial ignorance a Modiano novel is a sensory experience like no other

    Review originally published at Learn This PhraseI hadn't planned for such a recent translation to be the first Modiano I read but its appearance on my local library's 'New Books' shelf was irresistible In the end I consumed this brief hallucinatory novel in one gulpWithin its pages is an account of a journey that of a writer named Jean who wanders Paris in search of the truth about a woman he loved long ago It's a mystery of sorts the woman

    The Black Notebook stands out among Patrick Modiano’s novels as both especially brief and especially direct The Black Notebook centers on the aging Jean’s recollections of his decades ago abbreviated affair with Dannie Older now perhaps in his late 60s or early 70s Jean wonders about the reality of his affair ”And yet it was no dream So

    Vague vague vague The author plays a foul game with the reader by suggesting that he will reveal the connection between past events while he never does He does not ask his companions uestions when it would be logical does not include certain information in his 'black book' when it is important while his excuses not to do this are always ar
