Literary Cafés of Paris by Noël Riley Fitch

Literary Cafes of Paris: Among the seductive charms of Paris that draw today's traveler, the sidewalk caf� is the most typically Parisian. Visible proof of the French art of living, the caf� is at the very center of the city's artistic life.

Take this guide with you to any one of the literary caf�s discussed. Linger over coffee and read about the artists and writers who have preceded you--Hemingway, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Joyce, Henry Miller, Camus, Bellow and others. Or brew a coffee at home and be an armchair traveler. Included are descriptions, history, anecdotes, and comments on the food and drink of nearly thirty establishments central to the literary life of France, America and England.
