Flaneuse: Women Walk the City in Paris, New York, Tokyo, Venice and London

'FlOneuse (flanne-euhze), noun, from the French. Feminine form of flOneur (flanne-euhr), an idler, a dawdling observer, usually found in cities. That is an imaginary definition.' If the word flOneur conjures up visions of Baudelaire, boulevards and bohemia - then what exactly is a flOneuse? In this gloriously provocative and celebratory book, Lauren Elkin defines her as 'a determined resourceful woman keenly attuned to the creative potential of the city, and the liberating possibilities of a good walk'. Part cultural meander, part memoir, FlOneuse traces the relationship between the city and creativity through a journey that begins in New York and moves us to Paris, via Venice, Tokyo and London, exploring along the way the paths taken by the flOneuses who have lived and walked in those cities. From nineteenth-century novelist George Sand to artist Sophie Calle, from war correspondent Martha Gellhorn to film-maker Agnes Varda, FlOneuse considers what is at stake when a certain kind of light-footed woman encounters the city and changes her life, one step at a time.
