About the Event
In The Postmistress of Paris, best-selling novelist Meg Waite Clayton tells the powerful story of one woman’s heroic quest to save Jewish painters, intellectuals and a motherless child in Nazi-occupied France. Naneé is an heiress born with a spirit of adventure. Known as the “Postmistress” because she delivers information to those in hiding for the resistance, she uses her charms and skill to house the hunted and deliver them to safety. The character was inspired by the real life Chicago heiress Mary Jayne Gold, who worked with American journalist Varian Fry to smuggle artists and intellectuals out of France.
The Postmistress of Paris is an international bestseller, a NYT Editors’ pick, and an Amazon Best of the Month pick.
“Clayton’s lyrical, thought-provoking prose breathes life into her characters. This sterling portrait of a complex woman stands head and shoulders above most contemporary WWII fiction.”—Publishers Weekly
