France in Mind free pdf In her third literary Baedeker, Alice Leccese Powers-editor of Italy in Mind and Ireland in Mind"-"explores France through the senses and sensibilities of thirty-three British and American authors.
The food and the people, the culture and viniculture, the architecture and the expatriates, the pleasures (and frustrations) of France are described by intrepid travelers who also happen to be brilliant essayists, poets, and novelists. From Gertrude Stein's Paris to Ezra Pound's Pyrenees- from Tobias Smollett, who grumbled, to Peter Mayle, who settled in- and from Edith Wharton on falling in love to David Sedaris on falling over French grammar-here is France in all its splendor in the words of some of the best and most entertaining writers in the English language.
