The Paris Photo
The Paris Photo is a work of historical fiction set partly at the end of WWII and partly in recent time, linked by a picture taken in 1945. It is a story of how the traumas of wartime ripple into the present. It creates a vivid picture of life during the dark days of the Occupation, and also portrays the contemporary city that reveals, around almost every corner, its own scars from the war.
Jane S. Gabin is a writer and educator from New York City and now based in Chapel Hill, NC. She has published several works of non-fiction, dealing with literary history, but The Paris Photo is her first novel. In order to write it, she made several trips to Paris, recreating her father’s travels within the city, and pursuing extensive research. With a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a BA from Queens College (CUNY), she has taught at Chapel Hill High School, Queens College, UNC-CH, Meredith College, and in lifelong education at NYU and at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Duke University. She also has overtly twenty years’ experience in college admissions, working for a decade in the admissions office of a highly selective university, and then on the other side of the desk as a college counselor at independent schools in the NYC metro area. She is active in her community, travels whenever possible, and crafts her own greeting cards.
