While recently travelling in France I picked up this book to read as my husband and I wound our way along the French Riviera The book was a treasure trove of places to visit where once our literary heroes had trod It was exciting to stare and point to a hotel where F Scott Fitzgerald or Proust or Robert Louis Stevenson had once stayed or wrote or spent time recovering from illness Well researched and full of juicy personal information about famous authors and their contemporaries who visited and loved the French Riviera made for great travel reading So many facts that I didn't know Although many of the sites we visited are no longer recognizable it was fun to think about what it was like in the past and how it has changed in the present This Riviera is a stunning part of the world The blue of the sea is intoxicating and I felt I never wanted to leave If only I were a writer I felt sure this was a place where I could write the great novel
