By Erin Byrne

What else except pain and suffering can we expect if we are not well, you and I? —Vincent van Gogh, in a letter to Theo van Gogh, February 1889

What if all you can do is all you can do? Curl up. Breathe. Exist. Breathe, exist. In. Out. This was not what was meant to happen here.

Wings

Wings front cover-10.15-webWings is a love story of France, a blend of travel writing and memoir that reveals the country's art, cuisine, history, and traditions through encounters with characters such as Winged Victory, Claude Monet, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Coco Chanel, and a mélange of writers, filmmakers, and friends. Erin Byrne goes deep to discover little-known aspects of French culture and by doing so, uncovers long-buried qualities of herself. She is transformed and her stories may transform you.

“A reverie-inducing glimpse of past and present France.” —Phil Cousineau, author of The Book of Roads
