Riassunto: A disgraced poet accused of fabricating Nazi death camp poems breaks a 34-year silence when he tells a young woman about his student year in Paris, his entanglement with a right-wing politician, his love affair with a Parisian shop girl and his unnerving encounter with the enigmatic Frenchman who, he says, gave him the controversial poems.
From the Author: My initial idea for a novel usually comes from a character or place, a striking image, a question to which I'd like an answer or some intriguing moment from history. But once a novel is underway, I'm often amazed by the direction a story takes. This doesn't mean I haven't already formulated some sense of plot and the characters to inhabit it. Before I wrote a word of A Stone for Bread, I had decided it would be about a writer and a controversy over a manuscript. Having been at work on a very long piece of fiction set in 12th century France, I chose to locate some of A Stone for Bread in 1950s Paris. This proved a consequential choice for how the story would eventually unfold. As I began researching the time and place, an image came to me, seemingly from nowhere, of a little boy who in the innocence of childhood causes the death of his brother. This became the opening chapter of A Stone for Bread.
