Reviews

An entertaining read. David Downie is fabulous company!--Jackie lyden, All Things Considered, National Public Radio
Downie's adroit, learned, and ambitious book reinvigorates my sense of travel, taking me back to the happy knowledge that the world is still large, and history unfathomably deep.--Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun
David Downie is the master of educated curiosity. I have walked some of the city's streets with him, and reading this book is just as tactile an experience.--Michael Ondaatje
Evocative and moving. Downie brings a deep and impassioned knowledge of French history, culture, and language to this pilgrimage. The result is an extraordinary account that illuminates France past and present.--National Geographic Traveler
