decadent poverty, Marseille reeked of underground crime, opportunism, trafficked cocaine, rowdy tavern song Paris was a woman, a fallen woman in the arms of her Nazi captors but Marseille was a man, a schemer in a secondhand coat, ready to sell his soul or whatever else came quickly to hand It doesn t take long to fall in love with Varian Fry who was an American To be in Marseille, not Paris, still carried a certain novelty, a whiff of the unknown If Paris reeked of sex, opera, art, and decadent poverty, Marseille reeked of underground crime, opportunism, trafficked cocaine, rowdy tavern song Paris was a woman, a fallen woman in the arms of her Nazi captors but Marseille was a man, a schemer in a secondhand coat, ready to sell his soul or whatever else came quickly to hand It doesn t take long to fall in love with Varian Fry who was an American journalist He ran a rescue network in France helping Jewish refugees and anti Nazi s escape Nazi Germany and the HolocaustHe helped between 2,000 and 4,000 people.Julie Orringer who wrote The Invisible Bridge one of my favorite bookshas written a gripping historical fiction again I ve been waiting anxiously and excitedly for years for Julie s second novel Oh it s FABULOUS She educates her readers while totally transporting us back to a time in history in the most intimate ways.The year was 1940Varian Fry was staying at Hotel Splendide Marseille, France Varian writes a letter to his wife, Eileen, who stayed back in New York He tells Eileen that he has a few ha we know it s much than a few , projects that he can t abandon He feels he must stay longer He shares with Eileen that he has run into an old friend Elliott Grant it s been 12 years since he has seen him Varian went to Harvard with Grant and they worked together at the Hound and Horn He reminds Eileen that Grant was the guy they use to call Skiffe guy she called a wet blanket Varian tells Eileen she was right.With only about 10% into the book I burst out laughing As the reader I was already so involved with the dialogue feelings and thoughts that Varian had for Grant some envious feelings some distrust and complex feelings.Grant had jealousy feelings, too, but hide them Jealousy seem parochial, retrograde, shameful Varian admits happy to see Grant these 12 years later though who became a professor of English at Columbia and is now on sabbatical They will be working together Many paths they will walk I melted when Varian included an e.e Cummings poem to his wife which he once gave her years before as part of his Valentines card I loved the poem One minute I m melting over the joy of a touching experience of a man s love for his wife another moment I m melting in a different way incredibly moved thankful to the great man Varian Fry and his bigger than life gifts of freedom to others Varian only had 3,000 and a short list of refugees under imminent threat of arrests by the Gestapo, mostly Jews Many desperate people including famous artists and musicians were begging for help seeking any means to escape Varian stepped forward putting his own life in danger used his own money Julie Orringer s storytelling feels so frightening and suspenseful and real at times Even letter writing home to Eileen as Varian re located throughout France was frightening to him, for the fear of censorship In Lisbon, for example he could be censor free but he also entered Lisbon with clients on an escape It s a long book but so was The Invisible Bridge Once again Reading Julie s novel was never a choreor too long It was a heavenly transporting journey Her historical fiction books both demonstrates the skill of a journalist with a flair a soulful artist herself I just can t say enough about this being the best Historical novel I ve read in a long time.Julie s writing is rich, poignant suspenseful emotionally felt with indelible characters so vivid and human that she totally restored my passion for Historical Fiction.Best not to give too many details away If you loved The Invisible Bridge you ll love this novel too.Many thanks to Knopf Random House, and to Julie Orringer for her brilliant achievement by her warmth and exquisite prose
