Book Description

Something Completely New ... Time Travel?

IF you ever wondered why Josephine was so angry with Napoleon, or what Sarah Bernhardt thought of Victor Hugo during la Belle Epoque, or how Proust gained pleasure from reading a railway timetable... or why the French continued duelling long after everyone else had given it up, then this is the travel companion for you.

The team at Time Travel Guides has searched out Perfect Bitesize essays, letters, diary entries, short stories and articles on France.

Strolling round Paris? Why not journey back to La Belle Epoque with the scandalous memoirs of Sarah Bernhardt? Having a coffee on the boulevard St Germain? then let Marcel Proust explain how to maximize the pleasure of your indolence. The Champs Elysees? What better than to read Napoloeon's letters to Josephine. Visiting the Perigord? Why not read how to hunt truffles from an expert, or let Robert Louis Stevenson take you on a donkey trek into the Dordogne. Voltaire's dictionary will give you an insight into the French philosophy of life and his entry on kissing is not to be missed! With Edith Wharton you can even see Paris at the outbreak of war. This volume contains over 64,000 words from the finest writers in the history of France. So wherever you find yourself in France, from Nice to Normandy, this book will have the perfect letter, essay or article - all at touch of your Kindle.

Enjoy!
From all the team at Time Travel

P.S. There's a whole series - so you can be just about anywhere in the world and there'll be some magical piece of writing that would be perfect to read while you sit back and sip your cappuccino. You're in Berlin? How about reading one of Hitler's speeches - to understand just how he managed to beguile a nation and commit such horrors. At the Tower of London? How about a confession from Captain Blood, explaining exactly how he stole the Crown Jewels? Or read Churchill's description of the tower during the blitz. The Pyramids in Egypt? then what about reading the Egyptian Book of the Dead? or a letter from Napoleon describing what happened when he slept overnight in the Chamber of Khufu... On a visit to the Scottish Highlands? Why not read George Spicer's sighting of the Loch Ness Monster - and see if you can spot any flaws in his story. In Nepal? why not read the diary of famous yeti-hunter, B.H Hodgson.

P.S. For some examples of what this series is about ...

In a cafe in Paris? Why not read a witty essay by Mark Twain on what he thought of French women, or a letter from Gustave Eiffel describing his new idea for a tower... Find yourself in Hollywood? Why not read the first film script - you'll be surprised how short it is - or how about some love letters from Howard Hughes to Katharine Hepburn?

If you're sitting in a garden in Florence you can read what Leonardo Da Vinci thought about the meaning of life - all in his own words! That's the beauty about this series - it doesn't tell you what to think about Da Vinci, it gives you his actual words - carefully selected to leave out the boring bits. So you can read direct from Da Vinci: How to Live Longer and How to Die Happy. He even tells you why the Sky is Blue and his prophecies for the future.

You're in park by the Champs Elysees in Paris? Why not read one of Napoleon's letters to Josephine, and see why he loved her above all the others. You're in Berlin? How about reading one of Hitler's speeches - to understand just how he managed to beguile a nation and commit such horrors. At the Tower of London? How about a confession from Captain Blood, explaining exactly how he stole the Crown Jewels? Or read Churchill's description of the tower during the blitz. At the Pyramids in Egypt? then what about reading the Egyptian Book of the Dead? or a letter from Napoleon describing what happened when he slept overnight in the Chamber of Khufu... On a visit to the Scottish Highlands? Why not read George Spicer's sighting of the Loch Ness Monster - and see if you can spot any flaws in his story. In Nepal? why not read the diary of the world's most infamous yeti-hunter. You get the idea... hope you enjoy.
