Book now  Access


A concentration camp seems an unlikely backdrop for a wild night of fairytales for grown-ups, but when the poet, journalist and bouffon Robert Desnos is captured by the Nazis for spying for the French Resistance, his response is to organise clandestine storytelling gatherings. As the horror of the camps grows, so does the dark enchantment, surreal comedy and transformative power of the stories.

Funny, tragic, moving, and true The Remarkable Tale of Robert Desnos is an extraordinary exploration of countless other worlds and the power of the imagination to shape and affect reality.
