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 never knew 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.

    " Loved this little book! What a great story. Its such a wonderful quick read, it has all the makings of a classic comedy/love story. Its fantastically smart and interesting and exactly what you'd think comedic genius Gene Wilder would write. "

    Looking on a library shelf for an Oscar Wilde book...this was one of those serendipitous finds.

    Good. Spare language (and that, admiring, from a Faulkner-rather-than-Hemmingway aficianado). The simple language belies the visceral impact of the story. "
