by Henry James
When a literary giant shuns the charms of Paris and decides to explore the real France, the result is a very personal account of a land and its people.
From encounters with talkative nuns to reflections from empty late night railway station waiting rooms, this is a treasured snapshot of a France that is now almost forgotten.
Alongside Henry James' reflections from another century, this edition contains an up-to-the-minute guidebook for modern travellers visiting the same towns and cities.
