Into A Paris Quartier; Diane Johnson

Into A Paris Quartier: Reine Margot's Chapel and Other Haunts of St.-GermainInto A Paris Quartier: Reine Margot's Chapel and Other Haunts of St.-Germain by Diane Johnson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is less about the Chapel and St.-Germain as it is one woman's thoughts (and some research) about her 'hood. As I was visiting Paris, I wanted to see what her insights were and possibly trace her footsteps around the quartier but the walking is - as happens when you live someplace - scattered and meandering. That's not to say this isn't interesting, but it's not quite what I wanted and I wonder if it would have been published had the author not already had a following thanks to her novels.
