Paris is without doubt the literary capital of the world, and this book is the first extensive guide to unearthing its fascinating history. Written on an epic scale with more than 2000,000 words and over 500 illustrations, it is a landmark exploration, not only of the city's indigenous writers, but of the expatriates it nurtured and inspired: their lives, their literature, their homes and haunts, and, for some, their final resting place. Part guidebook, part reader's companion, 'Book Lovers' Paris' spans the city's literary breadth like no other book has ever done before.
