"A master storyteller, Elaine Sciolino has made the everyday life of one Paris street extraordinary. She writes with compassion and wit... I have been seduced!" -- Guy Savoy, chef and restaurateur "Elaine Sciolino...uses a deep knowledge of French history, a journalist's curiosity, and a playful sense of humor to examine life on one Paris street. The result is a literary tour de force-insightful, profound, brilliant." -- Gerard Araud, French ambassador to the United States "Elaine takes us on a walk down one of the most charming streets in Paris. I learned fascinating facts through her lively, engaging prose. A must-read for Paris lovers." -- Clothilde Dusoulier, author of The French Market Cookbook and Edible French "Intricately detailed, fastidiously researched, Elaine Sciolino has written a love poem to a spectacular, singular street in Paris... There are delights and discoveries on every page. A jewel of a book!" -- Patricia Wells, author of At Home with Patricia Wells "Under Elaine Sciolino's lyrical and humane gaze, a single Parisian street yields its secrets... Sciolino draws us into her world with a novelist's finely paced prose and detailed psychological portraits." -- Rhonda Garelick, author of Mademoiselle: Coco Chanel and the Pulse of History "Sciolino...takes readers for a cultural and historical stroll along her adopted city's venerable rue des Martyrs in this warmhearted, well-researched gem... Readers will appreciate her mixture of the tenacity of journalism and a warm memoir-like quality." -- Publishers Weekly "Readers familiar with Sciolino's dispatches to the New York Times will value her deft reporting and witty prose." -- Booklist "Sciolino knows her city, and it's charming that her favorite street there isn't one of the famed grand boulevards but the cafe and shop-crammed Rue des Martyrs... Sort of like being there." -- Barbara Hoffert - Library Journal
