Description

The true story of a love affair between two extraordinary women becomes a literary tour de force in this novel that recreates the surrealist movement in Paris and the horrors of the two world wars with a singular incandescence and intimacy

In the years preceding World War I, two young women meet, by chance, in a provincial town in France. Suzanne Malherbe, a shy 17-year-old with a talent for drawing, is completely entranced by the brilliant but troubled Lucie Schwob, who comes from a family of wealthy Jewish intellectuals. They embark on a clandestine love affair, terrified they will be discovered, but then, in an astonishing twist of fate, the mother of one marries the father of the other. As "sisters" they are finally free of suspicion, and, hungry for a more stimulating milieu, they move to Paris at a moment when art, literature, and politics blend in an explosive cocktail.

Having reinvented themselves as Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, they move in the most glamorous social circles, meeting everyone from Hemingway and Dali to Andre Breton, and produce provocative photographs that still seem avant-garde today. In the 1930s, with the rise of anti-Semitism and threat of fascism, they leave Paris for Jersey, and it is on this idyllic island that they confront their destiny, creating a campaign of propaganda against Hitler's occupying forces that will put their lives in jeopardy.

Brilliantly imagined, profoundly thought-provoking, and ultimately heartbreaking, Never Anyone but You infuses life into a forgotten history as only great literature can.

An Elite Daily Pick for 2018 book release that'll make hearing more your New Year's resolution.

Never finished

Not what I thought it was going to be. I stopped after chapter 5. Unfinished for now.

One of my favorites.

I loved this story and it's walk through history. The narration really gave it life.

It never hit home for me

After about 1/3 of the way in, I decided to cut my losses and bail on this. There was never a minute when I felt like I was sorry I had to stop listening because I had to do something else -- or when I was looking for an excuse to listen (i.e., in the words of NPR, no "driveway moments"). The narrator was excellent, and I may look for her other recordings, but this book just never caught on for me.
