Samenvatting

A suspenseful and dramatic story of impossible love between a German soldier and a French Resistance fighter in World War Two Paris.


In 1943, Michel Roth is a young soldier working in the German army's back offices in occupied Paris. But his fluency in French gets Roth a new task when the Gestapo find themselves in need of a translator for the confessions of interrogated French resisters.


After work Roth chooses another path – he slips out of his hotel carrying a bag of civilian clothes and steals into an alley where he changes personas, becoming Monsieur Antoine, a young Frenchman. He strolls the streets of Paris, where one day he meets Chantal, daughter of an antiquarian bookseller. They fall in love, and when Chantal warns him away from the notorious café Turachevsky, favoured nightspot for German officers and the French women who entertain them, Michel believes it is out of jealousy. Too late he discovers that she is a member of the Resistance, and his naiveté leaves Michel on the other side of the SS interrogation machine.


What follows is a tale of desperate cat and mouse through Paris, and into the devastated French countryside at the end of the war, when neighbours are quick to betray neighbours, and even to take revenge into their own hands.

Recensie(s)

'An incredible work. Casablanca and The English Patient come to mind' Gala 'It reads like Ken Follett and is reminiscent of Schlink's The Reader' brigitte - Kultur & Unterhaltung 'This haunting tale of doomed love between the young, disillusioned German soldier and the feisty Chantal will find a happy audience' She Magazine 'A cross between Ken Follett and Bernard Schlink's The Reader...The narrative is exhilarating. Wallner expertly heightens the pace as you reach the tear-jerking finale. April in Paris is a book to share with friends: a love story for men, who don't usually cry' Brigitte - Kultur & Unterhaltung, Germany 'Both surreal and deeply arresting' The Age 'Compelling' Sydney Morning Herald 'Original and poignant, with some very good twists' Australian Women's Weekly
