Over the course of its over 25 years on Wyndham Street, French-language bookshop Parentheses has cultivated a devoted coterie of regulars who attend events with local and visiting French experts and celebrities (Juliette Binoche among them) and shop from the extensive stacks of books and DVDs.

This library-like store supplies everything from anatomy lectures to “chroniques Hongkongaises” to the complete works of Foucault. DVDs include such varied selections as The Molieres Collection and The Rocky Collection (en Francaises of course). And just in case the enterprise was sounding a bit academic, one can also find Paris Match and Voici – right alongside BeauxArts magazine and the new COTE magazine. A deep well of classics and a healthy Children’s section make Parentheses a one-stop-shop for any French-speaking family’s literary needs.
