City Lights welcomes Mark Hull. He discusses his new book, Masquerade: Treason, the Holocaust, and an Irish Impostor, co-authored with Vera Moynes, from the University of Oklahoma Press.
Phyllis Ursula James. Nora O’Mara. Róisín Ní Mhéara. Like her name, the life of Rosaleen James changed many times as she followed a convoluted path from abandoned child, to foster daughter of an aristocratic British family, to traitor during World War II, to her emergence as a full Irish woman afterward. In Masquerade, authors Mark M. Hull and Vera Moynes tell James’s story as it unfolds against the backdrop of the most important events of the twentieth century. James’s life—both real and imagined—makes for an incredible but true story.
