9781480208063: Statues of Liberty: Real Stories from France

Statues of Liberty derives its title from the fact that there are at least four of these monuments in Paris, as well as dozens scattered all over the world, all inspired by Bartholdi's original that stands proudly in New York Harbor. Statues of Liberty is a collection of essays written over a period of years documenting the author's experiences and discoveries in France Ranging from the trials and tribulations of a retired American renting an apartment from a dishonest landlady to visits to trade shows and food fairs to walks in the picturesque French countryside and the street artist Space Invader, the author's observations are always perceptive and insightful. Inspired by Janet Flanner's "Letters from Paris" published in the New Yorker under the pen name Genêt, the author--who is fluent in French--reveals insights into France and the French that escape more casual observers. While not intended to be a guidebook, Statues of Liberty: Real Stories from France will interest anyone who lives in France or is planning a trip to the world's most popular tourist destination.
