About the Book

In Nazi Germany, twenty year-old graphic artist Cioma Schonhaus found a unique outlet for his talent: he forged documents for people fleeing the Reich, ultimately helping to save hundreds of lives. Even as the Gestapo posted his photo in public, he lived a daringly adventurous life, replete with fine restaurants and beautiful women, all the while managing to elude the Nazis until he could escape in the most unlikely of ways-by bicycling to Switzerland. "A catalog of hairbreadth escapes, clever ruses, and brazen coups" (New York Times), The Forger is an astonishing and remarkably buoyant tale of wartime heroism and survival.
