Francophile Book reviews
A forgotten French Classic - one of the most influential novels in French history, inspiring masterpieces like Les Misèrables and The Count of Monte Cristo. It is an early example of a policier (crime fiction) and features one of literature’s first superheroes.
What an immersive & explosive story which threads love, life and freedom with the spectres of racism, terror, & ambivalence.
This Sabri Louatah thriller leaves us with a cliff-hanger! It's a family saga in contemporary French society with post-colonial challenges.
‘I’ll Never Be French (no matter what I do)’ combines hilarious stories of adventures in France with lovely observations about life in a new country.
A must-read Parisian story of love, loss and family intrigue set in the months after liberation and modern-day Paris.
A delightful read describing the charming appeal to the social fabric of Provence and its pace of life.
