A Bundle of Letters Short Story
Henry James You know I have always been intensely interested in Balzac, who never shrank from the reality, and whose almost lurid pictures of Parisian life have often haunted me in my wanderings through the old wicked-looking streets on the other side of the river.
Babylon Revisited (short story) Short Story F Scott Fitzgerald As they rolled on to the Left Bank and he felt its sudden provincialism, he thought, "I spoiled this city for myself. I didnt realize it, but the days came along one after another, and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone."
