Louis Brauquier in Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhône (13)

I'd not have heard of the Marseillais poet Louis Brauquier if I'd not read any of Jean-Claude Izzo's works, although he's Izzo's favorite, and he's remembered here in the Vieux Port. Izzo quotes him a lot, his love of Marseille itself and the sea here in particular. I'll be honest: Brauquier is much more of a must to read than the Château d'If is to visit, especially with a horde of tourists in tow.
