I am a US born writer living in London. This flat in Paris was originally lived in by my American cousin, and most of his extensive library is still there. I use the flat primarily for work - it is an excellent place to write; quiet, great for walking the streets of Paris, surrounded by charming streets, supplied by cafes, restaurants and shops. The flat was redesigned in 2005 by a French architect, Benoit Dupuis, to maximise space and produce an atmosphere of calm concentration. It's well supplied with everything you will need if you want to work long hours in the flat - from cooking, to broadband to television.
