Summary
"André Schiffrin was born the son of one of France's most esteemed publishers, into a world that included some of the day's leading writers and intellectuals, such as André Gide, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. But this world was torn apart when the Nazis marched into Paris on André's fifth birthday. Beginning with the family's dramatic escape to Casablanca--thanks to the help of the legendary Varian Fry--and eventually to New York, this memoir recounts the surprising twists and turns of a life that saw Schiffrin, despite his radically altered circumstances, become one of the world's most respected publishers."--From publisher description
