Mark's Latest Interactions
Margot, I just finished reading this amazing book about Virginia Hall, an American spy in France who spent the war running an increasingly large part of the French resistance. I'd love to hear what you and your mother think. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/24/books/review/sonia-purnell-woman-no-importance-virginia-hall.html
Jay, good to hear about your grandson visiting Philippines. You or he can reach me at 404-735-7547 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NYT published a rave review of a bio of an unsung prominent resistance leader several minutes ago. Check it out! https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/12/books/review/lynne-olson-madame-fourcades-secret-war.html?action=click&module=Editors%20Picks&pgtype=Homepage . I downloaded my copy already.

A belated Happy Birthday. I recently read an interesting book on how the Brits and Americans dealt with/treated members of underground groups in occupied countries. I seem to recall you mother had something to do with the underground in the war and thought you might like to read it.

I'd love to hear about you mother's adventures back then—or yours recently. We will be vacationing near Petosky this summer. Is it anywhere near where you live? If so, It would be nice to chat.
