The Flight Portfolio
(Alfred A. Knopf, 2019)

With $3,000 in his pocket, American journalist Varian Fry launched a remarkable rescue network that helped thousands of Jewish and anti-Nazi refugees escape 1940s’ Vichy France. Part thriller, part love story, The Flight Portfolio dives headlong into Fry’s perilous mission to save the lives and work of some of Europe’s leading artists, writers, and thinkers. Fry is credited with rescuing such luminaries as Hannah Arendt, Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and more. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly raves: “Brilliantly conceived, impeccably crafted, and showcasing Orringer’s extraordinary gifts, this is destined to become a classic.” Orringer’s collection of short stories, How to Breathe Underwater, was named the San Francisco Chronicle’s Best Book of the Year and a New York Times Notable Book in 2003. Her debut novel, The Invisible Bridge, was long-listed for the Orange Prize in 2011.
