Footprints in Pairs

A few streets, a few lives… this new book is half history and half a personal family autobiography, Author Gillian Tindall, a master of miniaturist history, tells ordinary stories of the ordinary lives of five generations of her family while revisiting Paris’s Latin Quarter evoking all the resonances of the Left Bank – students and artists, garrets and cafés, music halls and courtesans. Tindall’s writing makes much of an unknown person or single situation while staking out a particular territory in idiosyncratic non-fiction that is brilliantly evocative of place.
