Novels based in Paris
Been looking for a novel based in Paris for a while now, what would y'all recommend? Doesn't really matter the genre I just want a good, interesting read of Paris.

quote:

Jules Maigret is a fictional French police detective, actually a commissaire or commissioner of the Paris Brigade Criminelle (Direction Régionale de Police Judiciaire de Paris), created by writer Georges Simenon.

Seventy-six novels and twenty-eight short stories about Maigret were published between 1931 and 1972, starting with Pietr-le-Letton (Peter the Lett) and concluding with Maigret et Monsieur Charles (Maigret and Monsieur Charles). The Maigret stories were also adapted for television and radio.

Might not technically be a novel, but A Moveable Feast is a great read and is specifically about Paris. Granted, it's about Paris mostly in the 1920's, but I'd highly recommend it.

Also will look into Hemingway's stuff, I've just never got around to reading his stuff. Thank you.
