Summary
"This book relates what happened to some of the most celebrated German writers and journalists after they fled the Nazi terror to find shelter in France. It is a tragic intellectual drama that unfolds over seven years, featuring Thomas Mann, Lion Feuchtwanger, Stefan Zweig and Joseph Roth, as well as H. G. Wells, Andre Malraux, Aldous Huxley and Andre Gide. It recounts how persecuted authors settled in a colony in the south of France, how they tried to counterattack, aided by British and French novelists, how they quarrelled among themselves and how they sought to alert the West to Nazi plans for military conquest and warn the German people that Hitler was plunging the nation into ruin."--BOOK JACKET
