The North American paperback edition of PARIS was published this April.  If you are thinking of a visit to Paris, it's quieter during August when most Parisians are on vacation.  But I personally love September and October.

Paris : City of love. City of revolution.  This thrilling and romantic story opens in La Belle Époque, the golden, hedonistic age of peace and joie de vivre. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, passion, and long-kept secrets both fictional and true, set against the backdrop of the city - from the summit of Montmartre to the gothic towers of Notre Dame to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain, from the medieval world of saints and scholars to the modern French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternité.   Read More and Purchase





Did You Know?
Anyone for cricket? In 1776, the Sons of Liberty famously pulled down the statue of King George III on New York’s Bowling Green. But when the British Army occupied New York soon afterwards, Bowling Green was used as a cricket pitch. I should like the young people of nearby Wall street to start playing cricket again on Bowling Green - just to make sure they don’t forget the good old rules of English fair play!
