You might be familiar with Josephine Baker's distinctive dancing— before World War II, the American-born singer/dancer/actress was one of the most famous performers in France—but this biography begins with the Nazi occupation in Paris, and, subsequently, the forced removal of "negroes and Jews" from entertainment. When Baker joined the Resistance as a spy, her position among the elite was unusual but indispensable to MI6. Damien Lewis's exhaustive and captivating research will not only bring you closer to Baker's true (untold until now) story, but also reveal her tenacity and patriotism as one of the first women to serve as an Honorable Correspondent in a time of great upheaval.
