Patrick Modiano wins Nobel Prize in Literature

ever heard of him?

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Actually, he doesn't seem to fit the 21th century bill.

2nd World novellist dealing with evil/gulag/holocaust (Kertess, Müller).

1st World writers doing "all the other stuff"... poetry, plays, feminism, S/M, etc., (Trans, Pinter, Jelinek, Lessing).

The odd thing, but the best compliment i saw by people who read in other forums is that his prose is Raymond Chandler level. It is ok, as I saw someone mentioning before Chandler as the best prose writer of USA (and I think he is quite good anyways, at least his dialogues), but it is an odd mention for a nobel winner nevertheless.
