Women Writing on the French Riviera: Travellers and Trendsetters, 1870-1970

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Destination for artists and convalescents, playground of the rich, site of foreign allure, the French Riviera has long attracted visitors to its shores. Ranging through the late nineteenth century, the Belle Epoque, the ‘roaring twenties’, and the emancipatory post-war years, the book examines the contributions of nine remarkable women to the cultural identity of the Riviera in its seminal rise to fame. Embracing an array of genres, including fiction, memoir, diary, letters, cookbooks, and choreographies, it highlights the innovativeness of women who seized the challenges and opportunities of their travels in a century of radical social and artistic change.
