On Bastille Day: Must-Read French Books




Today is la Fête nationale in France.  The day, known by many as Bastille Day, commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution.



In honour of the day, I thought I’d share a list of 100 Must-Read Books Translated from French.  The list appeared on the BookRiot site last year:  http://bookriot.com/2016/07/25/100-must-read-books-translated-from-french/.   There are books from Québec and Belgium and various French-speaking African countries as well as France itself.

Happy Reading!
Bonne Lecture!
