Paris Reading Project

What started as a theme in my reading has become an obsession. This is a list of books, mostly fiction, set in the city of Paris, through which I am slowly making my way. If you have any ideas of books not on this list that need to be on it, especially examples of world literature with which I am probably not familiar, e-mail them to me (ionarts at gmail dot com) for inclusion.
