The City of Literature: 40 Books Set in Paris

Murder on the Eiffel Tower by Claude IznerThe City of Literature: 40 Books Set in Paris: It's a book lover's dream to wander the very streets that inspired Marcel Proust, Émile Zola, Samuel Beckett, Albert Camus, Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and so many others. You might step into the Salon at 27 rue de Fleurus where Gertrude Stein mentored Ernest Hemingway, or have a drink at the café littéraires Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore, the long-ago haunts of James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound and their fellow The Lost Generation writers.

Surprised that there was no mention of Simenon.

Genre lit is not lit, Deb. But I agree.
