David McCullough to create book on Americans in Paris

Next literary trend - books on Americans in Paris.

David McCullough, the million-selling historian whose biography of John Adams helped start a wave of best sellers about the Revolutionary War era, is working on a book about the many artists and writers transformed by their time in the French capital.

"It will be different from anything I've done before," Mr. McCullough said in a statement released Monday by Simon & Schuster, which will publish his book in 2010.

"But it's a side of our history that I care very much about. It will include people like James Fenimore Cooper, Dr. Oliver Wendell HolmesSr., Samuel F. B. Morse, Marry Cassatt and John Singer Sargent, Edith Wharton, Stephen Vincent Benet and Langston Hughes, William Shirer and Josephine Baker, and a number of others of great interest who are too little known."

McCullough, 74, has won two Pulitzer Prizes, for "John Adams" and "Truman." His most recent book, the million-selling "1776," was published in 2005. An illustrated edition came out this fall.
