Tragedy, Lust, Murder and the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris

This week we received a piece of promotional email from Anna Eriksson who has written a guidebook for the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Illustrated with superb photography by Mason Bendewald, the guide includes practical information and intriguing stories about 31 of the most famous people interred in the world’s most interesting cemetery, including: Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Chopin, Collette, Heloise and Abelard, Moliere, Edith Piaf, Proust, Isadora Duncan, Sarah Bernhardt and Maria Callas – to name of a few.

When we updated and expanded our Paris Guide this spring, we added a new section on Pere Lachaise and think that you might find Anna Eriksson’s guide to be of interest if you will be traveling to Paris. An iPod audio edition of the guide is also available. See this website for details on the book, the author and the Pere Lachaise Cemetery.
