We recommend Barney's Version, a fictional story that is written as Barney Panofsky's autobiography in which Barney recounts his life in various ways.

Depending on the region, French Christmas stories take their inspiration from geography, fauna or flora. Thus the very pretty Legend of the sage plant features the Holy Family and three Provencal plants. Alphonse Lusignanwho, at the outset of his career, was responsible for some very fiery journalism, left a volume of chroniques entitled Coups d'oeil et coups de plume, which was much relished by readers.
