Praise for The Paris Architect:


"A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war."
Malcolm Gladwell, bestselling author of The Tipping Point and Outliers

"The ingenious hiding spaces and the people in them infiltrated my imagination for weeks.
dreamed about this novel." —Jenna BlumNew York Times bestselling author of THOSE WHO SAVE US

“Belfoure’s portrayal of Vichy France is both disturbing and captivating, and his beautiful tale demonstrates that while human beings are capable of great atrocities, they have a capacity for tremendous acts of courage as well.” – Library Journal STARRED review

“Belfoure’s characters are well-rounded and intricate. Heart, reluctant heroism, and art blend together in this spine-chilling page-turner.” – Publishers Weekly

“Belfoure writes like an up-and-coming Ken Follett” – Booklist

“If you enjoy fast paced, graphic, and fascinating historical fiction, I recommend you read THE PARIS ARCHITECT.” –Erika Robuck, author of Hemingway’s Girl

“All novelists are architects. But are all architects novelists? Charles Belfoure in his impressive debut seems to have brought us the best of both worlds. Here is a novel to read alongside the latest Alan Furst. I hope there will be more.” – Alan Cheuse, NPR book commentator

Lucien Bernard didn’t expect to join the French Resistance. It starts out as a game—an architectural puzzle. When a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews in Nazi-occupied Paris, Lucien can’t resist the challenge.

He begins a secret life, designing expertly concealed spaces invisible to the untrained eye—all while working with the Germans on the other side.

Set during the roundups and deportations of 1942, The Paris Architect (October 2013; ISBN: 9781402284311; $25.99 U.S.; Fiction; Hardcover) is a powerfully human novel of survival, self-knowledge, and the challenge of sacrifice in the midst of uncertainty and fear.

Charles Belfoure is a former lecturer at Goucher College whose writing has appeared in the Baltimore Sun and theNew York Times. An architect specializing in historical preservation, he is the author of several award-winning works of nonfiction. This is his first novel. He lives in Maryland.
