Summary:

The beloved actor and screenwriters first novel, set during World War I, delicately and elegantly explores a most unusual romance. Its almost the end of the war and Paul Peachy, a young railway employee and amateur actor in Milwaukee, realizes his marriage is one-sided. He enlists, and ships off to France. Peachy instantly realizes how out of his depth he is, and never more so than when he is captured. Risking everything, Peachy, who as a child of immigrants speaks German, makes the reckless decision to impersonate one of the enemys most famous spies.

As the urbane and accomplished spy Harry Stroller, Peachy has access to a world he could never have known existed, a world of sumptuous living, world-weary men, and available women. But when one of those women, Annie, a young, beautiful, and wary courtesan, turns out to be more than she seems, Peachys life is transformed forever.
