Blending memoir, travelogue, and history, The Seine is a love letter to Paris and the river that determined its destiny. Master storyteller and longtime New York Times foreign correspondent Elaine Sciolino explores the Seine through its lively characters?a bargewoman, a riverbank bookseller, a houseboat dweller, a famous cinematographer?and follows it from the remote plateaus of Burgundy, through Paris, and to the sea. The Seine is a vivid, enchanting portrait of the world's most irresistible river.

Reviews for The Seine: The River that Made Paris

I learned so much from this book. Elaine Sciolino is a graceful, companionable writer, someone who speaks about France in the most enjoyably American way... [She] proceeds from colorful detail to revealing detail, gently informing even as she entertains... Sciolino has laid one more beautiful and amusing wreath on the altar of the City of Light. -- Edmund White - The New York Times A soulful, transformative voyage along the body of water that defines the City of Light. Elaine Sciolino is the perfect guide to the world's most romantic river. -- Lauren Collins - The New Yorker
