Letters to the Lady Upstairs
Available in Stock
102 Boulevard Haussmann is an elegant address in the eighth arrondissement of Paris. Upstairs lives Madame Williams, with her second husband and her harp; downstairs, Marcel Proust is trying to write In Search of Lost Time. Between 1909 and 1919, a correspondence that starts with a request for silence blossoms into a touching friendship, discussing books, music, domestic arrangements, illness, and the sadness of losing friends in the war.
