The diary features a vibrant French blue and white Proven al fabric pattern called "Mazan," a contemporary take on a classic motif, with a contrasting blue and yellow border fabric from the venerable Olivades textiles company in Saint-R my. Within the slipcase lies a linen-textured hardcover book with a red floral design that displays the year '2014' in a decorative medallion. Vintage typography and fifty-eight evocative new photographs by Guillaume de Laubier enhance the captivating design of this unique engagement calendar. Each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offers a vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages and inspiring landscapes. In this year's Diary we visit the posh resort of Biarritz, poised on the shores of the Atlantic in the Pays Basque; stroll through the romantic gardens of Eug nie-les-Bains in the Landes region; explore the palm decked harbor town of Villefranche-sur- Mer on the Mediterranean, with its pastel-hued hillside homes; glory in a springtime morning on the terrace of a trend-setting Paris florist; and enjoy a pre-Christmas evening on the Left Bank at the Deux Magots caf . Design elements are as handsome as ever. Lush four-colour endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a ribbon stitched in to mark each week, and end matter that includes decorative address pages are what the Diary's worldwide legion of fans have come to expect.

A sharply observed record of day-to-day life under Nazi rule in Paris and a bitter commentary on literary life in those years, it has also been called 'a remarkable essay on courage and cowardice' ... Here, David Ball provides not only the first English translation of this important historical document, but also the first ever annotated, corrected edition"--

Something broke inside me. I knew somehow that it was all over . . . . Sweat started in my armpits; my scalp tingled; I had no choice but to stand there in the center of the dusty road, grip my [bicycle] handle bars, and wait.Virginia dAlbert-Lake It was on this road deep in the forests of France on June 12, 1944, that the Germans arrested Virginia dAlbert-Lake and an Allied airman she was leading to safety. DAlbert-Lakes work in the Resistance was overshe would spend the next eleven months as a prisoner of war, much of it in the notorious Ravensbrck concentration camp for women, where she almost died.Virginia dAlbert-Lake was one of thousands who risked their lives saving downed airmen along the Comet escape line that stretched from Belgium to Gibraltar. What distinguished Virginia from other resisters was that she was an American citizen who had the option to return to the safety of her native country. Yet she chose to remain in France where her dangerous work nearly cost her life.This fascinating book tells the remarkable story of an ordinary American womans heroism in the French Resistance. Born in Ohio and raised in Florida, Virginia Roush fell in love with Philippe dAlbert-Lake during a visit to France in 1936; they married soon after. In 1943, they joined the Resistance. Defying gender stereotypes, Virginia put her life in jeopardy as she sheltered downed airmen. As a prisoner of war, her refusal to reveal secrets saved many lives, and when Free French and Allied forces finally liberated her in 1945, she weighed 76 pounds, 50 pounds under her normal weight. After the war, Virginia stayed in France with Philippe, receiving awards that included the Lgion dHonneur and the Medal of Honor. She died in 1997.Judy Barrett Litoff brings together two rare documents in this unique bookVirginias diary of wartime France until her capture in 1944 and her prison memoir written immediately after the war. Masterfully edited, they capture the compassion and toughness of a nearly forgotten heroine as they provide an invaluable record of the workings of the Resistance by one of the very few American women who participated in it.

Read the lost masterpiece behind the major new film starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Michelle Williams Set during the year that France fell to the Nazis, Suite Française falls into two parts. The first is a brilliant depiction of a group of Parisians as they flee the Nazi invasion; the second follows the inhabitants of a small rural community under occupation. Suite Française is a novel that teems with wonderful characters struggling with the new regime. However, amidst the mess of defeat, and all the hypocrisy and compromise, there is hope. True nobility and love exist, but often in surprising places. Irène Némirovsky began writing Suite Française in 1940, but her death in Auschwitz prevented her from seeing the day, sixty-five years later, that the novel would be discovered by her daughter and hailed worldwide as a masterpiece.
