New books on France for Feb/Mar...

Not too much going on in the publishing world for French-related books at the moment, although there are loads of new guides and maps that come out at this time of year, like the new Rough Guide to Paris and the 2010 Michelin Guide. Still, mananged to find a smattering that look interesting:

Lunch in Paris: A Love Story with Recipes by Elizabeth Bard

Back Roads France: Scenic Routes - Charming Hotels - Authentic Cuisine
by DK Eyewitness Guides

Frommer's Paris Free and Dirt Cheap by Anna E. Brooke

The Invention of Paris by Eric Hazan

Colors of Provence: Traditions, Recipes and Home Decorations from the South of France by Michel Biehn


Packabook - Books set in France said...

Hi. Another newish book set in Paris is 'The Coral Thief' by Rebecca Stott. It is set in the early 1800's, but all the reviews suggest it gives a great reconstruction of the city. It was published right at the end of 2009.
