Suspended Sentences

The Georgetown Book Club's February selection

Before being awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature, French novelist Patrick Modiano was not widely known outside his home country. However, for his readers, his preoccupations have long been clear, as his work often explores the Nazi occupation of Paris and its aftermath.

Such focus is evident in the three novellas that comprise Suspended Sentences -- "Afterimage," "Suspended Sentences," and "Flowers of Ruin" -- which are not linked by plot or character but which do echo each other in their settings and the related themes they explore.

Join the Georgetown Book Club as we discuss Suspended Sentences by Patrick Modiano on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Copies are currently available at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library, and everyone is welcome!
