Sebastian Faulks is widely regarded as one of the finest novelists of his generation.
His magnum opus, Birdsong, has sold over two million copies. His new novel Paris Echo follows Hannah, an American post-doctoral researcher studying the German Occupation of Paris in 1940-44; and Tariq, a Moroccan teenager who has run away from home.
Faulks takes us back into the hidden Paris of the Dark Years, the Algerian war and the simmering discontents of the Banlieue, a haunted city of injustice and bad faith, of ghettos and betrayal.
