It is not to be

In the Café of Lost Youth (New York Review Books Classics) - Patrick Modiano, Chris Clarke

I get why Modiano won the Nobel Prize, but for some reason he really isn't to my taste. There is music in the writing, but I really don't care about what happens to anyone or anything in this book. It's not you Modiano. It's me. We are just not meant to be.
