Description

This is a literary tour of the French Riviera. It covers the lives and work of all the writers who found inspiration there - from Graham Greene and W. Somerset Maugham, who spent much of their lives there, to those writers whose work it dominates, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Guy de Maupassant, to those who simply lingered there. Ted Jones' encyclopaedic work covers them all, including- Louisa M. Alcott; Hans Christian Andersen; J.G. Ballard; Simone de Beauvoir; Bertholt Brecht; Albert Camus; Casanova; Bruce Chatwin; Joseph Conrad; Charles Dickens; T.S. Eliot; Andre Gide; Ernest Hemingway; Victor Hugo; James Joyce; and countless others.
