Marie Modiano in conversation with Jesús Martínez

Lointain: A novel

Arequipa 2021, 

The French writer and singer Marie Modiano had very early contact with the world of art, as the daughter of the French Nobel prize-winner, Patrick Modiano, and the illustrator Dominique Zehrfuss, and has had a prolific career which has seen the release of five albums, two poetry books and two novels. Her most recent work is Lointain (2021), a story that evokes the young love between a theatre actor and a writer, characterized by the atmosphere of uncertainty, melancholy and nostalgia left by the writer’s disappearance. She will talk about this with Jesús Martínez.
