The Piano Shop On the Left Bank: Discovering a Forgotten Passion in a Paris Atelier
by Thad Carhart
Walking his children to school each day, expatriate Thad Carhart passes the demure storefront in his Paris neighborhood that displays the tools of the piano technician's trade. After he lands a proper introduction to Luc, the atelier's master, the doors open to the quartier's oddest hangout, where everyone from mechanics to professors gather to discuss life, love and music.
The book is at once a beguiling portrait of Paris not found on any map and a tender account of the awakening of a lost childhood passion.
"Thoroughly engaging....In part it is a book about the most unpredictable and pleasurable of human experiences, serendipity...[It] is also about something more difficult to pin down, friendship and community." Paperback 288 pages - (3/02)
