Read in April, 2010

Another fascinating story of a translator, German to French and vice versa, 1943, Paris. Roth, a German soldier, translates during interrogations of French citizens. His relationship with the daughter of a French antiquarian bookdealer's daughter puts them both in jeopardy and forces him to relate to interrogations at a personal level.
The author cites Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon and Felix Hartlaub's In den eigenen Umriss gebannt, as inspiration for this novel.
