Vorwort The compelling story of Sylvia Beach, founder of the Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris, who fought against all the odds to bring one of the most important books of the twentieth century to the world. Zusammenfassung INSPIRED BY AN EXTRAORDINARY TRUE STORY... 'A novel I long to live in' Kate Quinn, author of The Alice Network PARIS, 1920. On the bohemian Left Bank, Sylvia runs a little bookshop called Shakespeare and Company. Here she welcomes the greatest writers of the day - and from the moment James Joyce finally walks through her door, the two become friends. When Joyce's controversial novel Ulysses is banned, Sylvia is determined to publish it herself. But championing the most scandalous book of the century will come at a cost - and Sylvia finds herself risking ruin, her reputation and her heart, all in the name of the life-changing power of books. Set in post-war Paris, The Paris Bookseller is a sweeping story of love, courage and betrayal - and a breathtakingly beautiful love letter to books. *** 'A worthy homage to Sylvia Beach and a love letter to all bookstores, libraries and the passionate and committed women who run them' New York Journal of Books 'I was completely enthralled' Natasha Lester, author of The Paris Secret 'An intriguing story, beguilingly told' Mail on Sunday 'Absorbing and beautifully written... transports you to 1920s Paris - and keeps you utterly captivated with its vivid cast of characters and their bohemian lifestyles' Heat 'A compelling coming-of-age tale, in addition to an impressive piece of historical fiction' Culturefly 'A book for the bookshop lovers . . . an absorbing novel about the life changing nature of our favourite reads' Belfast Telegraph 'A compelling and fascinating look at the world-changing mavericks who bonded, bickered and triumphed in the realm of literature' Nuala O'Connor 'A compelling portrait of a remarkable woman, who steps from the pages in all her charm, courage and vulnerability' Gill Paul 'Intelligent, fierce and filled with reverence for a fascinating epoch in literary history... a delight for readers and writers' Whitney Scharer, author of The Age of Light ...
