A historical, cultural, and architectural journey through a dozen exquisite and refined French châteaux and residences. A dozen aristocratic French families invite readers to experience their elegant lifestyle, from the royal stag hunting tradition of Louis XI and Louis XIII at the Château de Champchevrier to Hubert de Givenchy’s elegant Parisian townhouse imbued with grandeur and comfort in the style of Napoleon III. The featured houses, illustrated with specially commissioned photography, represent key periods of French decoration. The exquisite Renaissance architecture of Château d’Anet and its sumptuous interiors with great fireplaces, silk upholstered sofas, and soft lighting exude the notorious ardor between Henry II and Diane de Poitiers. The hidden sanctuary of a Parisian manor reveals a dignified library and a harmonious blend of antique and contemporary fabrics and sculptures. A grand salon with Versailles parquet is illuminated by a Louis XVI crystal and amethyst chandelier. Meticulously planned gardens beckon contemplation and dining tables replete with crystal and silver are a visual feast. From the architecture, garden designs, furniture, textiles, and art collections, these exclusive private homes are a rich source of interior design inspiration.

All accommodation budgets are catered for, too, whether you're after a grande dame city institution or a backpacker-friendly party hostel. Both for weekend breaks and longer stays, The Rough Guide to Paris fits the bill.

Chicago 1920: Hadley Richardson hat die Liebe und das Glück bereits aufgegeben, als sie Ernest Hemingway trifft und sofort von seinem guten Aussehen, seiner Gefühlstiefe und seiner Kunst, mit Worten zu verführen, angezogen wird. Die beiden heiraten und gehen nach Paris, wo sie Teil einer schillernden Gruppe Amerikaner werden, unter ihnen Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound und die Fitzgeralds. Doch im Paris der goldenen 20er – fiebrig, glamourös, verwegen – lassen sich Familie und Treue kaum aufrechterhalten. Während Hadley, inzwischen Mutter, mit Eifersucht und Selbstzweifeln ringt und Ernests literarische Arbeit allmählich Früchte trägt, wird das Paar mit einer Enttäuschung konfrontiert, die das Ende all dessen bedeutet, was es gemeinsam erträumt hatte...

""Apartment Stories" works from the brilliant premise that urban culture and domestic architecture are indeed related in a number of unpredictable and mutually enlightening ways. Marcus's readings of Balzac and Zola novels in the context of the new urban architecture are absolutely superb, and she remains subtle and unexpected at every step."--Bruce Robbins, author of "Feeling Global"

In the modern literature on Renaissance art and architecture, Paris has often been considered the Cinderella of the European capitals. The prestigious buildings that were erected soon after Franois I decided in 1528 to make Paris his residence have long since been lost. Thomson, however, restores this fascinating chapter of architectural history in his careful synthesis of documentary and technical sources.
