Do you like thick (809 p.) inter-generational family stories full of historical details and drama? Read on - this novel is for you. In his research the author discovered fantastic historical street maps, drawings, paintings and models of the city of Paris in the Carnavalet Museum in the Marais and photographs from the Museum of Montmarte. He made use of these details to create an intimacy between the reader and this most beautiful and romantic of all European cities. We see Paris through the eyes of the noble family, the deCygnes and the revolutionists Le Sourds. The Gascon family helps build the Eiffel Tower and shows us the seedy underworld of the Moulin Rouge. Other characters give us a glimpse into the literary and artistic world of Paris in the 20’s. Rutherfurd’s style is often compared to James Michener, another lover of books that can be used as door stops based on their weight alone! However we have the advantage of e-books of which this title is available as well as his other tomes, e.g. London, New York and Sarum. Check Our Catalog
