Saint-Michel-de-Montaigne and Avalon, Mississippi

 I am so happy to have read this book since it has re-acquainted me with one of my favourite writers, Michel De Montaigne.  The book gives some historical context to his essays, which only makes me love him even more.  A writer of world importance.  One day before I die I want to visit his library at Saint-Michel-de-Montaigne.

And the Mississippi John Hurt museum.  He died thirty weeks before I was born.  I have loved this blues singer most of my life.
