A haunting portrait of Paris past and present from the bestselling author of Birdsong

In Paris every building seems to hold the echo of an unacknowledged past...

American academic Hannah and runaway Moroccan teenager Tariq have little in common, yet both are susceptible to the daylight ghosts of Paris. Hannah listens to the extraordinary witness of women who were present under the German Occupation and finds a city bursting with clues, connections and past love affairs.

In the migrant suburbs, a rarely seen corner of Paris, Tariq is searching for a mother he barely knew. For him in his innocence, each boulevard, M├ętro station and street corner is a source of surprise.

In this urgent and deeply moving novel, Faulks deals with questions of empire, grievance and identity. With great originality and a dark humour, Paris Echo asks how much we really need to know if we are to live a valuable life.

Industry Reviews

"Superb... weaves winningly between the present and the second world war, between Tangiers and Paris." -- Alex Preston * Observer *
"`[Paris Echo is] brimming with Faulks's deep affection for Paris. His outsider's interest in quirky street names and quaint corners transports his readers there too. And in the end, the book is powered by his ambition to evoke that place, its ghostliness, those spectres of history, lurking around every beautiful avenue" * Guardian *
"A brilliantly plotted and occasionally hallucinatory novel, in which the author's genius for literary ventriloquism is shown off to startling effect." * New Statesman *
"Paris Echo doesn't disappoint... Faulks is doing what he does best, marrying careful historical research with a good ear for dialogue" -- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
"[An] exquisite book... a deeply affecting, wholly unsolemn treatment of some of the 20th century's darkest moments." * Daily Mail *
