A Remarkable Place

April 18, 1993

I enjoyed "Les Miserables"--both the book and the musical. However, after reading "A Sunny Bit of Britain Off the Coast of France" (March 21), I am mystified as to how Victor Hugo wrote his novel on Guernsey during the French Revolution, before he was born, and set in a period later in French history. Guernsey must truly be a remarkable place.

Editors' note: Victor Hugo did write "Les Miserables" on Guernsey, but it was published in 1862, 73 years after the French Revolution's climax in 1789. We regret the error.
