Writers' Paris


A collection of posts about Paris, posted for Bastille Day last Sunday:

"25 Famous Authors' Poetic Descriptions of Paris"

My favorites, that make me think of my recent trip:
Gertrude Stein “America is my country, and Paris is my hometown.”  
Edmund White: “Paris… is a world meant for the walker alone, for only the pace of strolling can take in all the rich (if muted) detail.”  
Oscar Wilde: “When good Americans die, they go to Paris.”
