The Long Shadow "

Cocktail. Discussion. Plat du Jour. More Great Socializing.

The Long Shadow is a sensual, romantic mystery with roots in the pre and WWII era of Paris, Berlin, which reach into current time, weaving a tangled and dangerous web around François, a Paris magazine publisher, and his Irish-American Taos, New Mexico photographer lover, Claudia.

Pursued on two continents, François and Claudia are totally in the dark about why, until Claudia stumbles onto a series of frightening clues which suggest an ugly resurgence of Nazi terrorism from an unsuspected part of the globe. How does François' father, well-known Jewish artist Elie Rosenberg, a former student of the Bauhaus, figure in this? And what do Latinos and native Americans have to do with neo-Nazis?

Claudia Carroll, who writes under the pen name CJ Carroll, received a late-date Masters in Arts in Education from Harvard (2002) and has engaged in various forms of journalism, creative writing and art for many years. She is working on a sequel to The Long Shadow. Visit http://lulu.com/claudia_carroll/

Patricia's profiles:


Patricia writes on being an Expat:"... As the years went by, I also realized that the feeling of being foreign and other, transcends even race. You are not part of their (French) culture. It doesn't matter who you are or of what origin you are. You're either French (in your head and behavior), or not. When I began to see that, I began to identify myself as an expat. The sum of being an American who lives in Paris, an African-American trying to find roots here, minus not being French - but seeing life internationally - on a large scale and permanently, equals my personal experience of being an expat."
