- ObserverHere is Paris as you have never seen it before - a city in which every building seems to hold the echo of an unacknowledged past, the shadows of Vichy and Algeria. With great originality and a dark humour, Paris Echo asks how much we really need to know if we are to live a valuable life.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

The value of historical knowledge as an alternative to living in the present is explored in this new book from the author of bestselling novel }Birdsong{. American postgraduate Hannah, who researches the lives of women during the German occupation, and Tariq, who has run away from Morocco in search of sex and adventure, are followed as a conduit to these themes. Presents a Paris not of refined aspirations but of cultural hauntings and simmering tensions.
