René Goscinny




The Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaisme is organising the first retrospective devoted to the writer and scriptwriter René Goscinny, forty years after his death. The co-creator of Astérix, Petit Nicolas and Lucky Luke played a key role in the expansion of comic-strip writing worldwide. He left behind him a significant body of work, the wealth and abundance of which has not always been recognised, and which shows cross-cultural influences from Eastern Europe, America as well as France

Céleste Albaret (1892-1984) was the French Author Marcel Proust's Servant. She was born into a peasant family in the mountainous region of Lozère, France. In 1913, she married Odilon Albaret, a Parisian chauffeur, whose clients included Marcel Proust. Odilon suggested that his new wife, who was lonely in the big city and at a loss for something to do, run errands for Proust, and before long Céleste found herself employed as the writer's full-time (indeed round-the-clock) housekeeper, secretary, and nurse, filling those roles until his death in 1922. In later years, Céleste ran a small hotel in Paris with her husband and daughter, and after Odilon's death in 1960, she became the caretaker of the Musée Ravel in the town of Montfort l'Amaury. Monsieur Proust was published in 1972. In recognition of her decade-long service to Proust, Céleste Albaret was made a commander of the French Order of Arts and Letters. She died of emphysema at the age of 92.

We don't  fill up on street crepes covered in Nutella, we prefer to take a timeout and have some tea and pastries. For us the Top Pastry Heaven Pasties to die for are chez Pierre Hermé. There, they are so light and delicious! People usually queue to get in but it really worth it! If you love pastries and macarons , Pierre Hermé is the place to go!
