Leslie Cockburn's best books

Leslie Cockburn is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and the director of American Casino, a documentary about the current economic crisis.

In May she named a best books list for The Week. One book on the list:
Americans in Paris: Life and Death Under Nazi Occupation 1940-44 by Charles Glass (HarperPress, London).

Before reading Charles Glass’ new book, it never occurred to me that so many Americans refused to leave Paris under Nazi occupation. Glass has uncovered a fascinating chapter of forgotten history.
Read about the other five books on Cockburn's list.
