The Tragic Notre Dame Fire Brought To Mind One Of My Favorite Books “Is Paris Burning?”

by Anura Guruge

One of my favorite books. My adoptive father, an avid reader and author, who lived in Paris for nearly 20-years, told me about it in the 1970s. I read it. Loved it.

I invariably keep a couple of copies of it, at home, in case I want to give one to someone who I know will enjoy it.

So, on Monday, April 15, 2019, for obvious reasons, this book was much on my mind. It is ironic. The title of the book “Is Paris Burning?” is what Hitler supposedly asked his Generals as they were fleeing from Paris — the Allies rapidly bearing down on the City. Hitler wanted Paris burned. His Generals disregarded his orders!

So, what Hitler failed to do …


After getting hooked on this book, I went onto this, by the same authors. I will confess I like ‘Freedom’ more than I do ‘Burning’, BUT they are both brilliant, compelling books.
