"Flaneuse [flanne-euhze], noun, from the French. Feminine form of flaneur [flanne-euhr], an idler, a dawdling observer, usually found in cities. That is an imaginary definition."

If the word flaneur conjures up visions of Baudelaire, boulevards and bohemia - then what exactly is a flaneuse? 

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, Flaneuse 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 flaneuses who have lived and walked in those cities.

“A Book Crammed with Information and Exciting Possibilities ”

I had been pondering about Flaneuse for a while before I bought it; it is, unfortunately, armed with the worst blurb I have come across in a long time. What is it about? Women who dressed as men? (a little). Men who... More
