F How about trying "Dora Bruder"? In this novel-esque piece of nonfiction, Modiano takes us on his haunted investigative trail of a Jewish teen who disappeared into nazi oblivion during the occupation of Paris. For Modiano, there are deeply personal implications, as Miss Bruder's trail through Paris is not entirely seperate from those of both himself and his father. I read both the original French as well the wonderful translation by Joanna Kilmartin. Highly recommended.
