How well does the American and British romanticized dream of Paris fit-in with the lived-in Paris of real Parisians? A new collection of essays seeks an answer. In 1948 Robert Doisneau took a picture of a young woman working at her typewriter on the banks of the Seine. With her stylish sunglasses and short skirt, she seems to epitomise Left Bank bohemian chic. In fact she turns out to be the English author Emma Smith, composing her debut novel during a heatwave. We'll Never Have Paris taps into the enduring fascination with a partly fantasised literary Paris (that of the Lost Generation, Joyce, Beckett and Shakespeare & Company) which also happens to be a largely Anglophone construct -- one which the Eurostar and Brexit only seem to have exacerbated in recent years. Andrew Gallix, who teaches at the Sorbonne, has brought together many of the most talented and adventurous writers from the UK, Ireland, USA and Australia to explore this theme through fiction and essays, in order to build up a (real or fictitious, flattering or disparaging) portrait of Paris as viewed by English speakers today. The book includes Deborah Levy, Tom McCarthy, Brian Dillon, Joanna Walsh, Eley Williams, Claire-Louise Bennett and some 70 other contributors.

‘Wendy Erskine’s first collection, Sweet Home . . . is every bit as good as her early stories in the always astute Stinging Fly magazine promised.’ Jon McGregor, New Statesman Set in the author’s native Belfast, the ten stories in Sweet Home lay bare the heartbreak and quiet tragedies that run under the surface of everyday lives. A lonely woman is fascinated by her niqab-wearing neighbours; a middle-aged teacher becomes obsessed with a young Gaelic football player; and an employer covers for his two employees caught having sex in a public toilet. Wendy Erskine offers perfectly formed, brilliantly observed portraits of people trying to carve out a life for themselves, all the while being buffeted by the loss, grief and regret that come their way. Warm, compassionate and funny, Sweet Home captures life in contemporary East Belfast, in all of its forms.
