We see Maurice Chevalier and Edith Piaf singing before French and German audiences; Picasso painting and occasionally selling his work from his Left Bank apartment; and Marcel Carne and Henri-Georges Clouzot, among others, directing movies in Paris studios (more than two hundred were produced during this time). We see that pro-Fascist writers such as Louis-Ferdinand Celine and Robert Brasillach flourished, but also that Camus's "The Stranger" was published and Sartre's play "No Exit" was first performed ten days before the Normandy landings.
Based on exhaustive research and extensive interviews, "And the Show Went On" sheds a clarifying light on a protean and problematic era in twentieth-century European cultural history.
Stephen Hoye has won more than a dozen "AudioFile" Earphones Awards and two prestigious APA Audie Awards, including one for "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert T. Kiyosaki.
