Teaser Tuesday: Missing Person by Patrick Modiano

With a single stride he was out of the café, not turning around, and I felt an emptiness all of a sudden. . . . Without him, without his help, I wonder what would have become of me, ten years back, when I was struck by amnesia and was groping about in a fog.

-- Missing Person by Patrick Modiano, who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2014. Missing Person was published in 1978 and is, on the surface at least, a post-war noir mystery of the narrator's search to discover his own lost identity.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB at Books and a Beat, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

This sounds good. I like to go back and read older books too. If only we had all the time we needed to read every book we wanted to read.
