29 Days until THE BONES OF PARIS…


It’s 29 days until The Bones of Paris, Laurie R. King’s suspense novel of 1929 Paris.



Hotel Benoit: probably in the neighborhood of 8 rue Vavin.


From page 9: A dizzying panorama of rooftops: tiles and tin, brick and timber, steeples and drying laundry; centuries of chimneypots and a narrow slice of stone magnificence in the distance.  Childrens voices and taxi horns competed with a tram rattle from the rue de Rennes and a neighbors accordion, mournfully wading through a lively tune.  


Harris Stuyvesant’s hotel occupies one of the little-known arcades south of the Seine, although most of the Paris arcades are on the Rive Droite.  The video is an excerpt from Walter Benjamin’s massive Arcades Project, showing a few of the arcades in question.

    Beautiful and eerie. Your books always make me want to visit their settings – now I have to return to Paris (oh darn).
