The Paris Architect: A Novel by Charles Belfoure | Conversation Starters
The Paris Architect, Charles Belfoure's first fiction work, tells the story of an architect in Paris in 1942
during the Nazi occupations of France.
Lucien Bernard is a non-Jew working as a craftsman in a time when work is hard to come by. He is approached by Auguste Manet,
who wants to hide a Jewish man,
Mendel Janusky, in a secret room hidden inside his house. Lucien is unsure if he should take the work as he knows there may be severe consequences
if he is found out.
He agrees to build the room due to the need for money. The Paris Architect is the story of the transformation of one man told with
vivid detail and imagery.
The Paris Architect became a New York Times bestseller and called a “must read” by The New York Post. It was also a finalist for the International Dublin Literary Award in 2015...
