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.

Increasingly, it is being recognized that spirituality, defined here as "a multiform search for a transcendent meaning of life that connects them to all living beings and brings them in touch with God or ‘Ultimate Reality,’" is an aspect of almost every sphere and aspect of social life.

In the spring of 1978, as a young journalist in Paris, Elaine Sciolino was seduced by a river. In The Seine, she tells the story of that river through its rich history and lively characters--a bargewoman, a riverbank bookseller, a houseboat- dweller, a famous cinematographer known for capturing the river's light. She patrols with river police, rows with a restorer of antique boats, discovers a champagne vineyard, and even dares to swim in the Seine. Sciolino's keen eye and vivid prose bring the river to life as she discovers its origins on a remote plateau in Burgundy, where a pagan goddess healed pilgrims at an ancient temple. She follows the Seine to Le Havre, where it meets the sea. Braiding memoir, travelogue, and history through the Seine's winding route, Sciolino offers a love letter to Paris and the river at its heart and invites readers to explore its magic.

A coming of age novella by literary fiction author Adria J. Cimino that sets the stage for the novel Paris, Rue des Martyrs Before the lives of four strangers collided in Paris, there was one young man. Before Paris, a prequel to the novel Paris, Rue des Martyrs, tells the story of how Rafael, son of an emerald broker in Colombia, found his way to the City of Light. One fateful and dangerous night in emerald territory, he learns his father was carrying a secret. And the key to unlock it can only be found in Paris. If you like literary fiction, pick up this short story today... This mystery novella will make you want to find out exactly what happens next! Interview with the AuthorQ. What was your inspiration to write Before Paris? A. Readers of Paris, Rue des Martyrs often tell me they love the character of Rafael and are intrigued by his background in the Colombian emerald mines. I decided to delve deeper into his past and what brought him to Paris, where the story in Paris, Rue des Martyrs starts. Q. And 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, liaisons and entwined paths. 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. A mother-daughter relationship and a father-son relationship are integral to the plot. The novel is about love and loss, and healing wounds of the past. It is about city life & coming of age. 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 with diverse backgrounds. It's a mysterious romance with many other elements! Q. Tell us about your other books. A. I've 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 two multi-author literary fiction collections: That's Paris: An Anthology of Life, Love and Sarcasm in the City of Light and Legacy: An Anthology. If you enjoy stories of encounters, family secrets and relationships, I think you'll enjoy Before Paris and Paris, Rue des Martyrs as well as my other work. Thanks for reading!
