About this product
- DescriptionFrench Tales is a collection of twenty-two translated stories associated with the twenty-two regions of France. The book, which includes both well-kwn and little-kwn writers, for example Prosper Merimee in the nineteenth century and Anne-Marie Garat in the twenty-first, affords readers a paramic view of French society and culture, reflecting, as it does, its variety and diversity from Brittany to Corsica. Writers include among others Maupassant, Zola, Annie Saumont, Marcel Ayme, Didier Daeninckx and Stephane Emond. The subject-matter ranges from stories about marriage, the First World War and homelessness to house-buying, childhood and hour-killing. Following the model of Paris Tales, also translated by Helen Constantine, each story is illustrated with a striking photograph and there is a map indicating the position of the French regions. There is an introduction and tes to accompany the stories and a selection of Further Reading. The book will appeal to people who love travelling or are armchair travellers, as much as to those who love France and things French.
- Author BiographyHelen Constantine is editor of the magazine Modern Poetry in Translation and the editor and translator of Paris Tales.
