In a chapter from his memoir of growing up beside Fontainebleau, Thad Carhart recalls a family journey that revealed the warm heart of France.
Twenty-six years ago Thad Carhart moved to Paris with his wife and two infant children. He lives there now, with frequent visits to New York and Northern California. His first book, The Piano Shop on the Left Bank, appeared in 2000, published by Random House. Across the Endless River, a historical novel, came out in 2009 with Doubleday.
