Synopsis: Using sensitive documents recently unsealed by the French government, Staman explores the life of Robert Denoel from his dramatic rise in publishing to his mysterious murder in 1945. A man of contradiction, Denoel published the works of anti-Semetics along side the works of Jews and Marxists. In fact, during the same month that he went on trial for Nazi collaboration, he won the most prestigious prize in French literature, The Goncourt, for his publication of a work by Elsa Triolet, a Russian Jew and an ardent supporter of the Nazi Resistance movement. How his company became an acquisition upon his death of his nemesis, Gaston Gallimard, involves a riveting tale of crime, murder, betrayal, and cover-up not often found even in fiction. Set against the colorful backdrop of Paris from the roaring '20s through the turbulent Nazi occupation years in the '30s to the post-war investigation, this is a riveting story of a fascinating man.

About the Author: A. Louise Staman has a Bachelors Degree in both French and History and a Masters Degree in both French and Humanities.
