"Coming of age in 1960s Paris, Bernard Appelbaum exists in the hazy shadow of the Holocaust and on the electric cusp of the French New Wave. We find the narrator of Wide Awake as he wanders the city streets in search of signs of his father, who was deported by the Nazis in 1942. Bernard's chance encounter with a former acquaintance who has become filmmaker Franȯis Truffaut's assistant leads to a spot as an extra on the set of Jules and Jim--setting into motion a series of discoveries and lost memories that crack open a hidden past."--P. [2] of cover.
