    Random House 2011; US$ 13.07

    Few books have captured the atmosphere of daily medieval life as well or as movingly as A Fool and His Money. Rodez, in southern France, was divided for centuries by a feud between two masters. This partitioned town thus acquired two distinct cultures. The story focuses on the strange case of Peyre Marques, a merchant who forgets where he has buried... more...

  • A Piano In The Pyreneesby Tony Hawks

    Ebury Publishing 2009; US$ 11.62

    'If you had to pick two things you wanted - if you had to - what would you pick?' I hesitated. This was a bigger question than usually got asked at these post-match debriefs. ' I suppose the honest answer would be,' I said, still accessing the last pieces of required data from a jumbled mind, 'meeting my soul mate, and finding an... more...

    From the late 19th century onwards Paris had been a congenial locus for bohemian life.

  • Paris Under Waterby Jeffrey H. Jackson

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 15.99

    In the winter of 1910, the river that brought life to Paris quickly became a force of destruction.  Torrential rainfall saturated the soil, and faulty engineering created a perfect storm of conditions that soon drowned Parisian streets, homes, businesses, and museums. The city seemed to have lost its battle with the elements. Given the Parisians?... more...

  • Dawn of the Belle Epoqueby Mary McAuliffe

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2011; US$ 18.99

    Paris in 1871 was a shambles following military defeat, siege, and a bloody uprising, and the question loomed, could this extraordinary city even survive?
