A catalog of Gallic must-reads from Le Chanson de Roland through The Possibility of an Island by Michel Houellebecq.
100 Great French Books: From the Middle Ages to the Present is such a fine addition to my permanent library. I love lists, especially ones recommending books to me! I will definitely be working my way through this one.
I am no expert on French literature, but author and U. Penn professor Lance Donaldson-Evans was knighted in France for his contributions to spreading French culture and language, so his opinion is probably worth listening to. Maybe the academics will find some hairs to split, but as for me, I’m excited to get reading.
Many thanks to BlueBridge for the review copy.
