NO PASSPORT FOR PARIS by Alice-Leone Meats


Email this review


More of the memoirs of trouble, sometimes troublemaking, Alice-Leone Moats as she reports on her latest war front activities, -- this time in Spain and France (1943-44). As correspondent for Co, she left for Spain on a short visit, and stayed over a year, leading a fairly life in Medrid, and she comments on anything from politics, censorship, diplomacy, political factions, to housekeeping, flame, trips to the provinces and other cities, interviews with Republican prisoners, allied air men, concentration camp victims, Falangists. Through her contacts with the Underground, she got into France on a French identity card, stayed both in Pau and in Paris, and found the Nazis as depressed as the French and Paris a dead city. A record with human interest rather than political import, lively, assured ""smart gal"" stuff, which will appeal to some -- antagonize others.
