The Discovery of France


Robb, Graham
The Discovery of France
ISBN: 9780330427609
Book Number: 57996
Picador, London 2007. 8vo. Hardcover in d/w. 455pp. Near fine. Illuminating, engrossing and full of surprises, The Discovery of France is a literary exploration of a country few will recognize; from maps and migration to magic, language and landscape, it’s a book that reveals the ‘real’ past of France to tell the whole story – and history – of this remarkable nation. ‘With gloriously apposite facts and an abundance of quirky anecdotes and thumbnail sketches of people, places and customs, Robb, on brilliant form, takes us on a stunning journey through the historical landscape of France’ Independent ‘Certain books strain the patience of those close to you. How many times can you demand: “Look at this! Can you imagine? Did you know that?” without actually handing over the volume? This is such a book’ Mail on Sunday ‘An extraordinary journey of discovery that will delight even the most indolent armchair traveller’ Daily Telegraph
