A New York Times Bestseller "Sciolino’s sharply observed account serves as a testament to…Paris—the city of light, of literature, of life itself." —The New Yorker Elaine Sciolino, the former Paris Bureau Chief of the New York Times, invites us on a tour of her favorite Parisian street, offering an homage to street life and the pleasures of Parisian living. "I can never be sad on the rue des Martyrs," Sciolino explains, as she celebrates the neighborhood’s rich history and vibrant lives. While many cities suffer from the leveling effects of globalization, the rue des Martyrs maintains its distinct allure. On this street, the patron saint of France was beheaded and the Jesuits took their first vows. It was here that Edgar Degas and Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted circus acrobats, Emile Zola situated a lesbian dinner club in his novel Nana, and François Truffaut filmed scenes from The 400 Blows. Sciolino reveals the charms and idiosyncrasies of this street and its longtime residents—the Tunisian greengrocer, the husband-and-wife cheesemongers, the showman who’s been running a transvestite cabaret for more than half a century, the owner of a 100-year-old bookstore, the woman who repairs eighteenth-century mercury barometers—bringing Paris alive in all of its unique majesty. The Only Street in Paris will make readers hungry for Paris, for cheese and wine, and for the kind of street life that is all too quickly disappearing.

Each one is on a quest: to uncover a family secret, to grasp a new chance at love, to repair mistakes of the past. Four stories entwine, four quests become one, as their paths cross amid the beauty, squalor, animation and desolation of a street in Paris, the rue des Martyrs.

If you're looking for a France novel, you'll love "Paris, Rue des Martyrs"!Interview with the AuthorQ. What was your inspiration to write Paris, Rue des Martyrs? A. City life inspired me. The idea that every day, we might pass the same people as we walk down the street, yet what do we know about their lives? What would happen if our paths crossed? One of my favorite genres is literary fiction, so I decided to write a novel in that vein about life-changing encounters. Q. What kind of story is Paris, Rue des Martyrs? Will it make us laugh, cry? A. I hope it will be an emotional read. Paris, Rue des Martyrs is about the importance of encounters. It is a love story, a story of friendship and family relationships.

And it is a Paris romance story, of course. Q. So many books have been written with Paris as the setting. What sets yours apart? A. Many books are about the Paris of berets and baguettes. Paris, Rue des Martyrs is about the reality of Paris life... living in a Montmartre neighborhood, sitting at a café, being Parisian by adoption in this melting pot of a city. It also has diverse characters, one of whom is deaf. There's not much in deaf fiction these days, so I was happy to take on that angle. Q. Tell us about your other books. A. Before Paris is the prequel to Paris, Rue des Martyrs. It delves into Rafael's past in the emerald mines of Colombia. I've also written another literary fiction romance novel, Close to Destiny. It's magical realism romance about righting the wrongs of the past. Some readers have compared it to The Time Traveler's Wife. And I contributed to the literary fiction collections That's Paris and Legacy. If you enjoy stories of encounters, family secrets and relationships, I think you'll enjoy Paris, Rue des Martyrs!
