If only Roland Barthes had decided to remain at his family home in the countryside, without cars passing in front of his door, instead of returning at his office next to the crowded streets next to the Collège de France, we would now have his novel. So, living in a cul-de-sac is very important for a writer!

I you're a writer you live in the writer's block. :)


I hear that's a dead end street.



Some local wag dubbed the area around McBurney Park "The Writer's Block" because of the number of prominent local writers who live near there.


The park itself is fodder for stories and inspiration:
