A big thank you to everyone who entered our city-lit Paris competition. Remember there were three copies of this excellent book up for grabs, just by leaving a comment on the posting - as easy as that!
You can still read the in-depth interview and read an interview with the editor, Heather Reyes, by clicking below.
But now, without further ado, here are the three lucky winners, chosen at random, from those of you who left a comment on the book review, names given as they identified themselves so they'll know who they are! You were asked to give your favourite piece of Paris inspired writing...
"c'est Jeff ici", who said:
My favorite is a novel: Le lit de la merveille by Robert Sabatier. It takes place in the neighborhoods and worlds I live in when in Paris. A young man grows old working in the world of books and publishing in the 5th and 6th arrondissements.
"Lynne Rees", who said:
In Casablanca, when Rick says to Ilsa, 'We'll always have Paris,' everyone who has ever been in Paris and in love with someone there, or with the city itself, believes him, because Paris never leaves you.
"pretemoiparis", who said:
I am right there with you Karin, A Moveable Feast is a beautiful intimate look into the expat artist/writer's life of early 20th century Paris, and defines a lot of that "romantic", bohemian aura that still lingers about today...
Please get in touch with me with your address if you won so that the publisher can send you your book. And look out for lots more interesting Paris stuff very soon.
On the way are book reviews of:
Mademoiselle London loves Paris (quelquefois) (sometimes) The Paris Poems, by Suzanne Burns Sur les traces des Enseintes de Paris
Interesting short articles on various lesser-known Paris corners and curios;
Interviews with Miss.Tic, the famous graffiti artist, Mademoiselle London and Marilyn Z. Tomlins, author of recently reviewed chilling real-life tale, Die In Paris.
And, dare I say, much much more. Thanks for doing Paris with me.
