Izzo, Jean-Claude

Garlic, mint and sweet basil

Résumé: A short sublime book exploring the themes closest to Jean-Claude Izzo’s heart: his native Marseilles, the sea in all its splendor, and Mediterranean noir—the literary genre his books helped to found. This collection of writings shows Izzo, author of the acclaimed Marseilles trilogy, at his most contemplative and insightful as he reflects on his native city, with its food, its flavors, its passionate inhabitants, and its long, long history of commerce and conviviality. Here he allows these abiding preoccupations to take center stage. Reminiscent of Henry Miller’s The Colossus of Maroussi and the lyrical essays of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Albert Camus, as uplifting and touching as Daniel Klein’s Travels with Epicurus, this slim volume will appeal equally to gourmets who delight in the strong flavors of Mediterranean cuisine, to those enchanted by travel along the Riviera, and, naturally, to aficionados of noir fiction.
