We are delighted to host an evening with A. W. Hammond in conversation with Alan Brough.
Hammond’s The Paris Collaborator is set in August, 1944. In German-occupied Paris, former schoolteacher Auguste Duchene has stumbled upon an unusual way to survive: he finds missing people. When he’s approached by the French Resistance to locate a missing priest – and a cache of stolen weapons – Duchene initially refuses. But the Resistance offer him no choice. Within hours, he’s also blackmailed by a powerful Nazi into searching for a German soldier who’s suspected of deserting. This heroic historical survival will bring tears to your eyes and hope to your heart.
