Sunday Times Bestseller

A haunting portrait of Paris past and present from the bestselling author of Birdsong.

'Superb... Weaves winningly between the present and the Second World War, between Tangier and Paris' Observer

American academic Hannah and runaway Moroccan teenager Tariq have little in common, yet both find themselves haunted by the ghosts of Paris.

Hannah listens to the extraordinary witness of women living under the German Occupation and finds a city bursting with clues, connections and past love affairs, while in the migrant suburbs Tariq is searching for a mother he barely knew. Urgent and deeply moving, Paris Echo asks how much we really need to know in order to live a valuable life.

'An exquisite book. Deeply affecting' Daily Mail

Review

[An] exquisite book... a deeply affecting, wholly unsolemn treatment of some of the 20th century's darkest moments. Daily Mail Paris Echo doesn't disappoint... Faulks is doing what he does best, marrying careful historical research with a good ear for dialogue -- Melissa Katsoulis The Times A brilliantly plotted and occasionally hallucinatory novel, in which the author's genius for literary ventriloquism is shown off to startling effect. New Statesman '[Paris Echo is] brimming with Faulks's deep affection for Paris. His outsider's interest in quirky street names and quaint corners transports his readers there too. And in the end, the book is powered by his ambition to evoke that place, its ghostliness, those spectres of history, lurking around every beautiful avenue Guardian Superb... weaves winningly between the present and the second world war, between Tangiers and Paris. -- Alex Preston Observer
