About this product
- DescriptionNo city has attracted so much literary talent, launched so many illustrious careers, or produced such a wealth of enduring literature as Paris. From the 15th century through the 20th, poets, velists, and playwrights, famed for both their work and their lives, were shaped by this enchanting place. From natives such as Moliere, Genet, and Anais Nin to expats like Henry Miller, Samuel Beckett, and Gertrude Stein, author David Burke follows hundreds of writers through Paris' labyrinthine streets, inviting readers on his grand tour.Unique in scope and approach, Writers in Paris crosses from the Right Bank to the Left and on to the Ile de la Cite as it explores the alleyways and haunts frequented by the world's most storied writers. Burke focuses t only on their writing, but on their passions, ecstasies, obsessions, and betrayals. Equally appealing to Francophiles and serious readers, this engaging book includes maps and more than 100 evocative photographs.
