As Charles Kaiser highlights in the afterword to his book The Cost of Courage, many Americans know close to nothing about the French Resistance and even forget about German sympathies of famous American appeasers, as well as anti-Semitic organizations blooming in the US in the 1930s. To remedy this amnesia, I highly recommend you read this suspenseful history book on the German Occupation of France during WWII and how one family, and all the French population, dealt with it.

I just received this beautiful literary novel from Other Press, the first book they send me, thank you! The Travels of Daniel Ascher addresses a very important page of French history. But it’s much more than that. It’s also a book within a book. Open to new literary horizons, try something new right now!
