"Indelible" by Alexandra Erin

[It's fiction. And American politics. Note the content warnings at the beginning of the story.]

 

"This is a story about a man who likes beer. 

 

And, I mean, who doesn't like beer? Who doesn't have a beer or two from time to time? There's nothing wrong with that. But this man, he really likes beer. He likes beer maybe a bit too much. There are a lot of people in this world who like beer, and maybe this story will make you think of one in particular, someone you know or have heard of.

 

But the man in this story, the thing you have to know about him is, he drinks to the point of blackout drunk. Not all the time, but enough times. Maybe too many times.

 

If the man you're thinking of is a man has never drunk to the point of blacking out, then the man you are thinking of cannot be the man in this story. 

 

It's very important that you know that going in. "

 

I'm not normally a fan of real-person fic, but this one is...nice.

The Nobel Prize in Literature 2014 goes to Patrick Modiano
Missing Person (Verba Mundi Book) by Modiano, Patrick (2004) Paperback - Patrick Modiano
Dora Bruder - Patrick Modiano,Mark Polizzotti

Congratulation Patrick Modiano. 

 

I haven't read any book from this writer. 

 

He wrote in French, so it is more likely that I would read a translated version of his work.

 

If you are like me who didn't know much about this writer, read the New Yorker article. http://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/patrick-modianos-postwar

 

Go read.
