Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fascinating account of how the buildup to WWII, the war itself, and its aftermath marked the lives of Parisian women . . . A standout social history.” ―Booklist (starred review)

“Sebba burrows into the lives of women in the City of Light during WWII to reveal their captivating and complicated stories . . . Sebba’s clear-eyed narrative concludes, correctly, that these women deserve understanding, not judgment.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Fascinating . . . Anna Sebba knows everything about Paris during the war and she relates in Les Parisiennes the end of all the whispered stories I’ve been hearing all my life. She understands everything about the chic, loathsome collaborators and the Holocaust victims, and their stories are told in an irresistible narrative flood.” ―Edmund White, bestselling author of Our Young Man

“Wonderfully researched, this is an important retelling of Les Annees Noires in Paris which puts women's stories, and the complications of their lives under Occupation, centre stage. Sebba reminds us that we should listen and put ourselves in their shoes, before leaping immediately to judgement, and backs this up with testimonies from many women whose voices have remained unheard.” ―Kate Mosse, Author of Labyrinth and Citadel

“Impressive . . . Sebba offers balance to the plethora of war histories featuring the roles of men.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“The further readers delve into the book, the more they’ll become entranced. . . . Sebba’s work delivers an intriguing perspective of an overlooked group during a time when all were tested beyond their limits.” ―Library Journal

On That Woman
“A solid biography of the woman who became the King of England's excuse for abdicating his throne . . . depicts Wallis as a woman who sought power and privilege but never expected the damage she wrought or the wrath she engendered.” ―The New York Times

That Woman goes a long way in explaining how a not-quite-divorced, not-quite-beautiful American bedazzled a king out of his kingdom.” ―Vogue

“Salacious and consuming, this well-researched biography will appeal to readers interested in British political and women's history.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Smart, eloquent, and unafraid to go beyond the myth of the duchess of Windsor.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Brought to brilliant light in this responsible, respectful biography.” ―Booklist on Jennie Churchill

“A rigorously objective book… Fascinating.” ―Financial Times on Mother Teresa
