Multcolib My Librarian Heather: Paris is a moveable feast
Annotation: The combination of Partin's tours and Hemingway's prose in A Walkable Feast: Exploring Hemingway's Paris on Foot will make you fall in love with Paris, whether it's your first or 15th visit.
Annotation:The perfect travel companion to the most romantic and fascinating of cities. Covering all the area of Paris that Hemingway and his fellow expatriates once roamed from Left Bank to Right, Noel Riley Fitch provides an intimate visit to major Parisian landmarks as well as to out-of-the-way cafes, hotels and residences immortalized by "Papa" and his friends.
Annotation:In twenty-five walking adventures, experience the City of Light through the eyes of those who lived and loved it best.
Annotation:Chronicles Paris's great periods of urban reconstruction through four walking tours. With a special focus on the work of Georges-Eugene Haussmann, this book provides a history of each site along with the motives behind the urban redesign and the reactions of Parisians who witnessed it.
Annotation: Get ready for a one-of-a-kind audio experience: four guided walking tours for you to listen to as you walk through the City of Light, plus a fifth CD of essential French words and phrases that every traveler wants to know.
Annotation:A flaneur is a stroller, a loiterer, someone who ambles through a city without apparent purpose but is secretly attuned to the history of the place and in covert search of adventure, esthetic or erotic.
Annotation:In this lushly illustrated book, Christine Graf explores the City of Light's magnificent array of cafes-from les cafes americains to the artist cafes of Montmartre and Montparnasse, to cozy nooks across every arrondissement.
Annotation:Blending pithy profiles and witty drawings of clientele and staff, the book is organised around a history of the café, its daily and seasonal rhythms, particular colorful patrons, and even its typical café/brasserie food.
