Back to Twenties France with ‘The Foundling Boy’

The Foundling Boy by Michel Déon, published recently in paperback in English, is both a coming-of-age story and a vivid picture of France (and Europe) as it was between the wars. It has won praise from writers including Paul Theroux and William Boyd. I’m delighted to be publishing an extract on Deskbound Traveller, with an illustration by Paul Cox that matches the verve of the writing.
