DAVID BURKE’S WRITERS IN PARIS WALKING TOURS are led by the author himself in intimate groups of walkers. He takes you on walks in the Latin Quarter, Saint Germain-des-Prés, the Père-Lachaise Cemetery, the Marais, Montmartre, and other literature-soaked districts and shares with you the fruit of his long years of research about the lives and works of such writers as Balzac, Hugo, Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust, Ernest Hemingway, and many others in this hothouse of literary works. We go to key spots in their illustrious careers, hear astonishing anecdotes about them, and discover settings of dramatic scenes in such novels as Les Misérables, Swann’s Way, and The Sun Also Rises.
As one of the walkers wrote:
“David creates vivid, personal impressions of the writers and writing he knows so well, but on the streets of Paris it seemed that the writers' spirits were walking along with us, pointing out their favorite haunts and whispering their stories in our ears. … I wouldn't have missed them for the world.”
