Suspended sentences | Patrick Modiano

Suspended Sentences by Patrick Modiano is a book of three stories that are related in some way - perhaps because they all have a narrator named Patrick (or some other variation of them), one is in the role of a young man and another is a boy - the character that goes with the title of the story.

Throughout the story, there is a feeling of wanting to hide something, from the mists that surround memories, to the feelings of loss that cover the characters and their lives. The stories in the book have many similarities with the life of author Patrick Modiano, but readers don't necessarily need to know anything about his past to enjoy these stories. Instead you will feel like you are entering a dream state, and are watching the story that Patrick tells.
