Littérature B1/B2 (SUMMER 1) : LITERATURE 1

Class full, out of stock

Wednesdays at 10-12:15pm
06/10/2020 to 07/08/2020
Instructor: Marie-Pierre Wolfe

Required: Edito B1 or equiv. Prepare for CECR B1/B2 level.

Description: Quartier perdu a été publié en 1984, trente ans avant que le prix Nobel de littérature ne soit décerné à Patrick Modiano. C'est une histoire fantastique, à suspense passionnant.
Le héros de l'histoire, Amboise Guise, auteur de romans policiers anglais à succès, arrive à Paris pour rencontrer son éditeur japonais. La ville est déserte : il n'y a que les statues - parce que c'est le mois d'aout (il n'y a personne à Paris au mois d’aout, sauf les touristes étrangers) et il fait très chaud : c'est une ville fantôme. La visite de tout un quartier de Paris, perdu dans sa mémoire, va élucider les mystères du passé d'Amboise Guise, du temps où il était français et où il s'appelait Jean Dekker.
This is part 1 (5-week long) of this 2-part class. You may sign up for part 2 (5 week-long) now to secure your spot.
