Set in Macau and focuses on a young Jewish woman – trying to find a safe haven. His novel’s main character is based on the letters and documents of a number of Jewish women who travelled through, all on the move and trying to survive. Paul gives a fascinating account of the interesting mix of people in Macau at that time. Being a Portuguese territory and therefore neutral, Macau was a mix of British, Nazi German and Japanese consulates, spies, resistance, refugees, police, those making fortunes on the black market… Strangers on the Praia: A Tale of Refugees and Resistance in Wartime Macao is published by Blacksmith Books.
