Red White and Blue: Riffing on Nine Books that Represent My Very-American Idea of France


Les Misérables by Victor Hugo...Class struggles, justice
A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway...The appropriation of France by foreigners who make it their own
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas...Justice
Paris in Winter by David Coggins...Seeing Paris through an outsider's eyes
Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child...French cooking 
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry...Simplicity, meaning in life
No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre...Existentialism, meaning in life
750 Years in Paris by Vincent Mahé...History
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux...Beauty, romance, music

I'm linking this to the #parisinjuly2023 event, hosted by Emma at Words and Peace.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
