13 Rue Therese Summary


13 Rue Therese by Elena Mauli Shapiro

An American in Paris falls in love with two women, one of whom he can only only imagine, in this wonderful debut.

As he settles into his new office in Paris, American academic Trevor Stratton discovers a box full of century-old artifacts. The pictures, letters and objects in the box relate to the life of Louise Brunet, a Frenchwoman who lived through both World Wars.

Trevor begins to piece together the story of Louise's life: her love for a cousin who died in the war, her marriage to a man who works for her father, and her attraction to a neighbour in her building at 13 rue Therese. As he becomes enamored with the charming, feisty Louise of his imagination, he notices another alluring Frenchwoman, his clerk Josianne, who planted the mysterious box in his office, and with whom he decides he is falling in love.

13 Rue Therese Reviews


'Delectably artful . . . a flirty, dirty tease of a novel . . . hot, jabbing and naughty, with a tight grip on the senses' * Simon Schama *
'Highly entertaining ... Extraordinarily sensual' * New York Times Book Review *
'Captivating ... Sizzling sexual tension' * San Francisco Chronicle *
'13 RUE THERESE is a puzzle-novel and gave me the same fizzy satisfaction as completing a Sunday crossword. It will light up your brain and your heart' * David Ebershoff, author of The Nineteenth Wife *
'A charming literary conceit . . . the fiction equivalent of Edmund de Waal's The Hare With the Amber Eyes' * Daily Mail *
'A magical Amelie style love story - eeeee' * Red *
