A New London Travel Guide

Wish You Were Here Global London Guide

Hello, dear friends! I’m wrapping up my winter travel book reviews with a truly delightful new publication. You probably already have on your travel book shelf the yummy Delicious Days in Paris by Jane Paech, in which she takes you on inspiring walking tours to find the best food and cultural experiences in the city (so evocative and irresistible that it is unwise to read it hungry!). I adore that book and am so happy to share that Jane has embarked on a new venture: writing and publishing thoughtful, charming and essential pocket travel guides through her new site WishYouWereHere.global

The first release, which I was excited to receive recently, focuses on one of the pearls of London – Covent Garden. Elegant in blush pink, it’s the perfect introduction to the essential pleasures of this historical and endlessly fascinating area. Jane shares her insider recommendations of the art, restaurant and shopping highlights while the breezy, sophisticated illustrations by co-founder Cecilia Eales capture its artistic spirit. Being quite familiar with London and Covent Garden, I can confirm that this is really the only companion you’ll need while exploring this lively neighborhood.

Covering everything from the Royal Opera House and the National Portrait Gallery (my favorite museum in London) to shops and pubs, it includes a very useful map for finding your way around the zigzagging streets and alleys.

Book Review: Hemingway’s Paris

Hemingway's Paris by Robert Wheeler

Hello, friends, and welcome to December! As you might imagine, I have quite a collection of books on Paris, and the arrival of winter is the perfect time to revisit favorites, for cozy evenings and as gift ideas for all the Francophiles we know.

I’m fortunate to have connected up with author and photographer Robert Wheeler this year, and his very marvelous book, Hemingway’s Paris, succeeds tremendously in presenting the city as Hemingway saw it.

For those that love literature, travel, photography, Hemingway and, above all, Paris, I recommend it as an essential library addition.

With a foreward by Jenny Phillips, the granddaughter of Hemingway’s long-time editor, Maxwell Perkins, Mr. Wheeler takes us on a bittersweet, fascinating tour of the Parisian haunts that influenced and inspired Hemingway throughout his life.

Mr. Wheeler’s evocative black and white photographs, rich with atmosphere and nostalgia, capture the streets, cafes, parks, bars and riverside walks that became part of Hemingway’s consciousness and upon which he drew in his writing, culminating in his final work, A Moveable Feast.

The sensitive and heartfelt commentary illuminates the tremendous effect that the city had on Hemingway’s work and life.

Much more than a snapshot of doors or exteriors, the author takes you inside the locations, to the very rooms Hemingway inhabited and gives us his views out the window, over the rooftops of Paris, and the sights and vistas that, remarkably, have not significantly changed. It’s an unforgettable journey.

Mr. Wheeler closes with an invitation to experience Hemingway’s Paris yourself. For it is indeed still there to be discovered, with an imaginative heart and this unique book to guide you.
