Description du produit
Revue de presse
"[Elaine Sciolino] is a dedicated reporter, determined to uncover something new, and her pleasure in observing the little life of her surroundings is infectious."
"It's the people who make Paris Paris. And in her latest book, Sciolino celebrates this idea, bringing her favorite street to life through the stories and histories of its residents and merchants... Anyone who loves Paris's remaining quirky "villages" will revel in Sciolino's meticulously reported accounts... Sciolino doesn't lack for inspiration; she has Paris at her feet."--The New York Times
"...you'll soon understand [Sciolino's] perpetually happy state and charmed infatuation with this small, quintessentially Parisian street through her enchanting ode to a fading, fascinating world."
--Living France Magazine
"Sciolino is a keen and tireless observer of this ancient little market street...She has written her love letter with such ingenuous passion it's hard not to cheer up."
--The Washington Post
"The former Paris bureau chief of the New York Times shares her love for her adopted working-class neighborhood in this delicious and detailed look at the rue des Martyrs. Her knack for making friends and her reporter's instincts keep this tour fascinating."--BBC Worldwide
"The narrative takes the form of a ramble through shops, courtyards, cabarets, and time...Sciolino's sharply observed account serves as a testament to the persistence of old Paris the city of light, of literature, of life itself."
--The New Yorker
"Something interesting for everyone: If you like food, architecture, history, art or simply human stories, you will not be disappointed."
--Christian Science Monitor
"A sublime stroll...From Ernest Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast" to A.J. Liebling's "Between Meals" to Janet Flanner's "Paris Was Yesterday," accounts of France's most famous metropolis tend toward the elegiac. So it is with "The Only Street in Paris"...The pleasures here are small ones...The magic of the street is not only its scope--it's about half a mile--but also its history."--Wall Street Journal
Présentation de l'éditeur
"This is a sensuous book...Sciolino has captured the bouquet of her dream street, and even the most cynical reader will find moments of beguilement." The Daily Telegraph
Elaine Sciolino, the former Paris Bureau Chief of the New York Times, invites us on a tour of her favorite Parisian street, offering an homage to street life and the pleasures of Parisian living. "I can never be sad on the rue des Martyrs," Sciolino explains, as she celebrates the neighborhood's rich history and vibrant lives. While many cities suffer from the leveling effects of globalization, the rue des Martyrs maintains its distinct allure. On this street, the patron saint of France was beheaded and the Jesuits took their first vows. It was here that Edgar Degas and Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted circus acrobats, Emile Zola situated a lesbian dinner club in his novel Nana, and Francois Truffaut filmed scenes from The 400 Blows. Sciolino reveals the charms and idiosyncrasies of this street and its longtime residents-the Tunisian greengrocer, the husband-and-wife cheesemongers, the showman who's been running a transvestite cabaret for more than half a century, the owner of a 100-year-old bookstore, the woman who repairs eighteenth-century mercury barometers-bringing Paris alive in all of its unique majesty. The Only Street in Paris will make readers hungry for Paris, for cheese and wine, and for the kind of street life that is all too quickly disappearing.
