Joseph has suggested that we give a link to Catherine's interview about her well researched historical novel of a very dark period in French history, Histoires floues (Blurred Stories), and I couldn't agree more. It's in French, but I'm sure you'll enjoy hearing her voice.
An extract of 50 pages (out of a total of 266) from Histoires floues is available here. It is fitting that it is in French; it is a story which needs to be told and re-told, for all too soon after the war many in France suffered from collective amnesia. The unspoken sentiment was ne pensons plus à cette histoire.
Further information (in French) and details of where Catherine's book can be purchased from her publisher here. It is available in print or as a downloadable electronic edition.
