"The beloved actor and screenwriter's first novel, set during World War I, delicately and elegantly explores a most unusual romance. It's almost the end of the war and Paul Peachy, a young railway employee and amateur actor in Milwaukee, realizes his marriage is one-sided. He enlists, and ships off to France. Peachy instantly realizes how out of his depth he is - and never more so than when he is captured. Risking everything, Peachy - who as a child of immigrants speaks German - makes the reckless decision to impersonate one of the enemy's most famous spies." "As the urbane and accomplished spy Harry Stroller, Peachy has access to a world he could never have known existed - a world of sumptuous living, world-weary men, and available women. But when one of those women - Annie, a young, beautiful and wary courtesan - turns out to be more than she seems, Peachy's life is transformed forever."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

This was a simple tale, simply told.

If you are looking for all the bells and whistles to keep you entertained, this isn't the book for you.

Quiet, understated, charming.

I loved it. ( )

Wilder’s story, set during WWI, has several very nice light touches, which I also associate with his movies - sweetness and grace, human dignity under difficult circumstances, and humor. It is rather simple, but it’s hard to imagine anyone hating it. ( )

If this book was a movie it would be a "sleeper hit". This book was mentioned in a Group Post on another site and made me curious. That was the only reason I picked it up. Thank you to whom-ever posted it, the book was wonderful! Mr. Wilder takes an ordinary man and places him in an extra-ordinary situation in an "ueber-extra-ordinary" time and we are allowed to see him rise above it all and in his own way, triumph. Kudos to this tight, little book that also proves it does not take 900 pages to tell an enthralling and complete story.

Entertaining, hilarious, and romantic - who could ask for anything more? I loved this tale of a heroic American World War 1 soldier who masquerades as a German spy and, in the process, falls madly in love with a French woman who has had to offer her body in exchange for...just about everything. A wonderful, random find from the library :-D ( )
