The Race for Paris by Meg Waite Clayton is a moving and powerfully dynamic World War II novel about two American journalists and an Englishman, who together race the Allies to Occupied Paris for the scoop of their lives. It is a National Bestseller and noted David J. Langum, Sr. Prize for American Historical Fiction, Honorary Mention for 2015.
Based on daring, real-life female reporters on the front lines of history like Margaret Bourke-White, Lee Miller, and Martha Gellhorn—and with cameos by other famous faces of the time—The Race for Paris is an absorbing, atmospheric saga full of drama, adventure, and passion. Combining riveting storytelling with expert literary craftsmanship and thorough research, the author crafts a compelling, resonant read.
