If you’ve spent enough time in Paris, you know that surrendering to the peaceful exploration that Parisians call flânerie is a perfect way to re-discover the city in autumn. Noticing everyone’s new fall

Who in the world has ever read a gastronomical crime novel set in medieval Paris ? I sure hadn’t, until a friend gave me a copy of Michèle Barrière’s Souper Mortel aux Etuves, or Fatal Dinner at the Steamrooms. The novel begins in the year 1393 with a murder at a
brothel disreputable steamroom, right in central Paris.
