Nobel Prize in Literature announced.
October 9, 2014
Patrick Modiano, a French novelist, has received the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature. He is know for writing about the effects of the German Occupation of France during World War II. Shelf Awareness and the New York Times have more information on Modiano.
Here is the bad news, we own two books by Modiano, both in Korean. None of his English language books are available to buy from Baker and Taylor or Ingram. A new title is coming out in February which is outside of our purchase window.
Past experience say new edition will be published or old editions will be reprinted soon. We will try to buy some of his titles then.
Last years winner, Alice Munro, Canadian author, was so much easier for us to supply for our collection.
