Our latest book is a new guide to St Peter Port as seen through the eyes of Victor Hugo from Guernsey’s leading Hugo scholar, Gregory Stevens Cox.
It takes the reader on a guided tour of St Peter Port condensing fifty years of research into the time that the great French poet spent living in exile on the island of Guernsey.
Take a tour of the island’s capital highlighting the shops and businesses Hugo frequented, as well as stories and anecdotes from the time he spent in the island.
Extensively illustrated with photographs new and old, showing how little the town has changed since the period of Hugo’s residence (1855-70).
Quelle brochette! Et je ne parle pas pour moi! Le livre de Gregory est devenu mon handbook companion in St Peter Port!
Gérard Audinet, Directeur Maisons Victor Hugo, Paris
