The Paris Hours
The Paris Hours: A Novel | Alex George
1 post | 4 to read
Four ordinary lives. One extraordinary story. Paris between the wars teems with artists, writers, and musicians, a glittering crucible of genius. But amidst the dazzling creativity of the citys most famous citizens, four regular people are each searching for something theyve lost. Cleste was the maid of Marcel Proust, and she has a secret: when she was asked to burn her employers notebooks, she saved one for herself. Now she is desperate to find it before her betrayal is revealed. Souren, an Armenian refugee, performs puppet shows for children that are nothing like the fairy tales they expect. Lovesick artist Guillaume is down on his luck and running from a debt he cannot repaybut when Gertrude Stein walks into his studio, he wonders if this is the day everything could change. And Jean-Paul is a journalist who tells other peoples stories, because his own is too painful to tell. When the quartets paths finally cross in an unforgettable climax, each discovers if they will find what they are looking for. Told over the course of a single day in 1927, The Paris Hours takes four ordinary people whose stories, told together, are as extraordinary as the glorious city they inhabit.

Yes, I wrote the book. It‘s still a looong way until May 5, when it comes out, but I thought I‘d share a photo of the ARCs, which have just arrived. I love this cover so much, but obviously I‘m a little biased.
