WHO WON THE LITERATURE NOBEL?

French author Patrick Modiano, 69, whose novel "Rue des Boutiques Obscures" -- English title: "Missing Person" -- won the prestigious Prix Goncourt in 1978.

The son of an Italian Jewish father and a Belgian mother, Modiano's work repeatedly examines Jewishness and the Nazi occupation.

FOR WHAT?

The Nobel judges praised Modiano for "the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation."
