From the author of the Booker shortlisted and highly acclaimed The Glass Room comes a new, gripping story of wartime intelligence and love. Marian Sutro is an outsider: the daughter of a diplomat, naive yet too clever for her own good. Now recruited to go undercover in wartime France, her official mission demands that she must act as a Resistance courier.
The Girl Who Fell From The Sky is hugely evocative of the streets of Paris, and the dangerous excitement of avoiding the Gestapo. Both a pacy and thrilling story of jeopardy and adventure, and a moving meditation on patriotism, betrayal and the limits of love. Come and meet Simon Mawer – the architect of this splendid novel – as he talks about his life and books.
