The New York Times Bestseller! "A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war." —Malcolm Gladwell An extraordinary novel about a gifted architect who reluctantly begins a secret life devising ingenious hiding places for Jews in World War II Paris, from an author who's been called "an up and coming Ken Follett." (Booklist) In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist. But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what's at stake. The Paris Architect asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we'll go to make things right. Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved.

A revealing history of writers who lived in Paris, from Moliére to Henry Miller: the basis for one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Literary Walking Tours. No city has attracted so much literary talent, launched so many illustrious careers, or produced such a wealth of enduring literature as Paris. From the 15th century through the 20th, poets, novelists, and playwrights, famed for their brilliant work—as well as their raucous bohemian lives—were shaped by this enchanting locale. From natives such as Arthur Rimbaud, Jean Genet, and Anais Nin, to expats like Ernest Hemmingway, Samuel Beckett, and Gertrude Stein, author David Burke follows hundreds of writers through the labyrinthine streets of Paris, inviting readers on a fascinating, in-depth tour of their lives in the City of Light. Unique in scope and approach, Writers in Paris crosses from Right Bank to Left and on to the Ile de la Cité as it explores the alleyways and haunts frequented by the world’s most storied writers. Burke explores how the city inspired their writing, and offers revealing accounts of their passions, obsessions, and betrayals. Equally appealing to Francophiles and serious readers, this informative book includes maps and more than 100 evocative photographs.
