Review of A Literary Paris from Best-Selling Author, Charles Shield
This little book is your passport to the cafés, salons, and boulevards of
Paris long ago, accompanied, as you stroll, by authors you've heard of, but
who are now your friends and acquaintances. Do not tarry before they
disappear around the next corner! They're waiting for you inside A Literary

Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee
Review from Claudia Strasser, Author of The Paris Apartment
What a fabulous read! It's just full of great information and brings a whole new perspective to Paris, makes me want to read the classics and is very pretty! Small enough to tuck into your purse and big enough to fill a traveler and writer's mind with the people and places that shaped Paris. Reading about their loves and lives gives what can sometimes be a cold city a lot of heart and meaning.
This wonderful little book packs a punch with colorful insights, giving dimension and character to parks and corners otherwise overlooked throughout Paris.
Review of A Literary Paris from Nancy Anderson, Literary Conversational Coordinator, Boston Athenaeum.
I found A Literary Paris a delightful work. For anyone who loves Paris, it is a treat to view the triple montage presented in the book. Not only is the reader treated to views of quintessential Paris through photos and vivid descriptions, complete with fascinating historical data, but a whole roster of writers contribute their views of Paris through their own works. Most of the writers selected are familiar; a few are less well known. All show us Paris through their personal -- and literary -- lenses. The concept on which the book was constructed is terrific. The thoughtful research of a careful, but playful, scholar is evident in every section. Even the size is perfect. I can't imagine a better bon voyage gift!
