Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) will publish an English language edition of Patrick Modiano’s latest novel. Gallimard, Modiano’s publisher in France, released the book back in October 2014 and it has become a bestseller.
HMH has scheduled a publication date for So You Don’t Get Lost in the Neighborhood in late 2015. Bruce Nichols, the company’s general interest publisher, negotiated the deal with literary agent Georges Borchardt (who represented Gallimard).
According to the announcement, Euan Cameron has signed on to serve as the translator for this project. The book “is a haunting novel of suspense, in which a single, unexpected phone call to a man living quietly in Paris launches a chain of menacing encounters and events, unlocking a dark secret he had erased from memory.”
