Romantic, dramatic fiction set during World War II by the actor and author of Kiss Me Like a Stranger and My French Whore
Something to Remember You By begins during the siege of Bastogne, Belgium on Christmas Day, 1944. In a foxhole where he is caring for five American soldiers, innocent but clever young medic Corporal Tom Cole is injured. Convalescing in wartime London, with its dimly lit blackout-compliant restaurants and mad dashes to the Tube station at the sound of the air raid sirens, Cole falls in love for the first time. But is the mysterious Danish girl he meets at the Shepherdess Café on the up and up? Cole is a cellist back home in the States, and Anna says she's a monitor at the War Office, scanning radio waves for incoming German planes. But is she? When Cole goes to the War Office one day to surprise his new lover, she's nowhere to be found.
Gene Wilder's Something to Remember You By takes Cole on a quest for the woman he loves but no longer trusts, and ultimately parachutes him, a newly minted intelligence officer, behind enemy lines into a concentration camp to save her life and discover the truth.
