The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs
Community. When I walked along the rue des Martyrs in April 2015, I was unaware that a book would bring me back there a year later. Elaine Sciolino, former bureau chief for The New York Times in Paris, has written a lovely book about that street titled, The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs. We can fall in love with Paris for so many reasons, and Sciolino is totally enchanted by her life there. Her observations are thoughtful, and the sense of community she conveys, especially in the potluck dinner to which she draws people who live and work on the street, offers hope to each of us who does something every day to build community in the places where we live.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
