April in Paris

Michael Wallner Å 1 SUMMARY SUMMARY Ú April in Paris Ogation of Resistance fighters But while off duty he slips away from his fellow officers changes into civilian clothes and wanders aimlessly through Paris disguised as his alter ego Antoine One day he is drawn into an antiuarian bookshop and becomes enchanted with the bookseller's beaut. Corporal Roth a German soldier is given marching orders to work in Paris as a translator in a Gestapo interrogation room During his free time he comes up with a verbotener plan to dress as a native Frenchman and wander through the streets of Paris He names himself Antoine whereupon he soon falls in love with Chantal a book dealer s daughter and a member of the French ResistanceAt first glance I grew restless and often angry with Corporal Roth because he is relentlessly shallow without the expected dimension of a character trapped in harrowing circumstances However it is impossible not be drawn into the story as our protagonist navigates both contradictory worlds I later came to understand that this lack of character depth might have been the intent of first time novelist and scriptwriter Michael Wallner He is after all writing about a shell shocked young soldier without much insight into his inner or outer world looking for a way to cope with the situationCorporal Roth takes an incredible risk to escape reality His assignment which involves witnessing the torture of French suspects behind closed doors is at great odds with his job of fluently speaking their language As he follows the Seine he is sleepwalking at the edge of the abyss and should be facing a great moral dilemma but he is too numb to look down into its depths We do not witness him struggle with much of anything As good soldiers must do he blindly approaches the horror with only part of himself because he otherwise could not get the job done It is only later that the character begins to unravel as his courageous yet foolish retreat into illusion becomes all too real If the stars align this book has great potential as a TV movie

READ April in Paris

Michael Wallner Å 1 SUMMARY SUMMARY Ú April in Paris Iful daughter Chantal The two begin to meet and fall in love before Roth has the courage to reveal his true identity or the time to discover that Chantal is part of the Resistance Written in an elegant and arresting style April in Paris is an engrossing novel from a promising new talent. Certainly there have been a vast number of books on this subject both fiction and nonfiction Honestly because it is a heart breaking subject I have often avoided novels of this type My interest was piued in this case because April In Paris is written from a German point of view sympathetic to the Resistance It perhaps long overdue for the world to reexamine the events of WWII in light of the fact that every German soldier was not a devout Nazi Still books and films that take this approach remain for me at least difficult to access I seem to feel however irrationally that they are untrustworthy as if they are somehow alive and could turn on me And I dread trying explain to anyone how I m reading a book about how Nazi soldiers weren t really so bad after allI think it is an interesting and somewhat troubling cultural fact that someone like me born 30 years after the end of WWII could still feel so conflicted over a book like April In Paris Perhaps the real value of this book is that by reading it I have discovered something about myself as well as something about the world
