The Belly Of Paris
- Anthony Bourdain Dec 13, 1999 08:37 AM
I am desperately seeking an English language copy of Emil Zola's THE BELLY OF PARIS (Le Ventre de Paris), said to be an encompassing tale of a food inspector in Paris' Les Halles. I have had no success with the usual suspects: Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Book Search etc.--and I'm definitely NOT looking for a $180 first edition--a tattered, dog eared paperback would do just fine. Any help?

Your post reminded me that I've wanted to mention Mayle's newest Provence book. It's of interest to those who love France (especially Provence) and food.
I was particularly amused to read his rebuttal chapter about Ruth Reichl's review of her vacation in Provence where she panned almost everything. A very good read, it is. p.
