Today is la Fête nationale in France. The day, known by many as Bastille Day, commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution.
In honour of the day, I thought I’d share a list of 100 Must-Read Books Translated from French. The list appeared on the BookRiot site last year: http://bookriot.com/2016/07/25/100-must-read-books-translated-from-french/. There are books from Québec and Belgium and various French-speaking African countries as well as France itself.
