With France boasting a cultural pedigree and rich history to rival even our own, we’ve found it very difficult to narrow down our French favourites, but we’ve just about managed.

On these shelves you will find peerless classics, gripping real-life stories and an exciting range of crime and modern fiction. Jean-Paul Sartre’s Nausea is the ultimate Parisian deep-thinkers novel, and if you’ve always been meaning to begin Proust – the time is now!

French writers have always been interested in human relationships and life’s big questions, as well as the artistry of writing. This makes for constantly challenging and satisfying reading; the perfect accompaniment to sunny days, whether those are spent here or on the Riviera.
