Notable People: (to name just a few!)

  • Claude Debussy

Paris, Manuel de Survie (Paris Survival Guide) by Jean-Laurent Cassely – I can’t say this is an intellectual read but it certainly is eye opening. If you want to live like a true Parisian then this is the book for you.

Left Bank by Kate Muir – A seemingly perfect couple living on the chic Left Bank of Paris suddenly find their daughter is missing. Whilst this book mainly focuses on family life, it’s based in Paris so definitely merits a mention on this page.
