Since the attacks in Paris last Friday, one book has been selling out in bookshops across the city: Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast. The author's account of living in Paris in his youth is seen as a love letter to the city, its cafes and bars, and the Parisian way of life. In French its title is translated as "Paris est une fête", or "Paris is a party".
The book has been left at memorial sites, as a symbol of defiance; publishers have ordered it to be reprinted after Paris bookshops ran out of copies.
Sharing thoughts, observations, discoveries... venting spleen from time to time... the self-indulgence that a blog enables. On the Tumblr site I started in June 2010 it's a lot simpler... just images, although sometimes NSFW.
