Francine Prose's 6 favorite books

Francine Prose's new novel is Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932.

One of six works that guided Prose as she wrote the new novel, as shared at The Week magazine:
Hitler's Table Talk: 1941–1944 — His Secret Conversations

Martin Bormann (and others) wrote down everything Hitler said at meals for years. The result is shatteringly banal and almost impossible to read from start to finish, but when I realized that my novel would include a dinner party with Hitler, I knew that this book would be a useful resource.
Read about another book on the list.
