In this illuminating travel guide, writer (and Riviera resident) Ted Jones leads readers along the Côte d'Azur, following in the footsteps of the literary luminaries whose seaside escapades drew the eyes of the world to France's southern shores. From Hyères, the "gateway to the Riviera," where Robert Louis Stevenson sought relief from consumption; Cannes, where Rudyard Kipling and Rupert Brooke relished warm winters and Jean-Paul Sartre walked the red carpet of the first Cannes Film Festival; Antibes, where F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote Tender Is the Night and Graham Greene fled British tax laws; to Nice, Cap Ferrat, Monaco...The French Riviera is a richly satisfying glimpse at the historic - and gorgeous! - landscape that inspired some of literature's greatest writers.
