    3.5 starsThe author came up with an original idea for a story which I always appreciate as a reader It might not have hit me on quite the emotional level I was hoping for, but it was still an enjoyable reading experience Paris in the 1920s was a wise choice for a setting as it s not a time period that is captured as often in historical fiction as say, the 1940s during World War 2 The story

    Some things are forgettable, but misfortune is not It dogs you relentlessly once it gets the scent of defeat Down and out, a day late, the wolf at the door all pull up a chair and take residence within the pages of The Paris Hours But lest you feel the weight of all that suppressing you about now, remember that a determined and undaunted soul travels through life with mop and bucket in hand.Alex Ge

    I haven t felt this way about a book since I read WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING.Every time I read Alex George and think he could not possibly write a beautiful novel, he does.After turning the last page of The Paris Hours I instantly considered rereading the entire book just so I could experience the magic all over again The Paris Hours will sweep readers off their feet from the very beginning and whisk them away to early 20th ce

    Four ordinary Parisians on a regular day in 1927 mix with the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Marcel Proust and Josephine Baker and Gertrude Stein, and the result is an unexpected overlap of stories and situations One is Camille, who ignored the wishes of her employer Marcel Proust and kept one of his journals Another is painter Guillaume who must find a buyer for his paintings before those to whom he owes money force him to pay up or

    Set in Paris in 1927, the City of Lights, vibrates with artists of all kinds However, the story gives the center stage to four ordinary people, who rub elbows with famous artists By meeting another person, they learn something about themselves And sometimes what one person needs is simply kindness.Armenian refugee, Souren Balakian, escapes brutality of his native country imposed by invading Turks Being forced from their homes and driven eastw
