THE PARIS HOURS explores, over one single day, the joy, sadness, and secrets of four regular people whose lives become entwined with some of the more famous celebrities of 1920s Paris: Ernest Hemingway, Marcel Proust, Gertrude Stein, and Josephine Baker. Beautifully written and paced, this is another moving and exhilarating novel by the author of our all-time favorite, A Good American.
