France: A Traveler's Literary Companion : A Traveler's Literary Companion Paperback / softback
Edited by William Rodarmor, Anna Livia
Part of the Traveler's Literary Companion series
This guide for literature enthusiasts and travelers alike reveals what Francophiles have long known: France is so much more than the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elysees. Including contributions from such celebrated French writers as Colette, Gabriel Chevallier, and Emmanuelle Laborit, this lively anthology takes readers through France in literary style. In Paris, walk down twisty Rue Ferriere, take a spin on a Franco-Arab carousel, and eavesdrop on a Jewish funeral party.
In the suburbs, meet a pint-sized book thief and a gritty ghetto gang. Then visit Provence, Brittany, Normandy, and Alsace-Lorraine, and even witness the Tour de France. Organized by region, these charming stories are often funny, occasionally surreal, and always compelling.
