Paris comes alive in this joyful celebration of the city, using the distinctive voices of writers from the past five centuries to illuminate familiar landmarks and to bring a literary atmosphere to every arrondissement. With extracts that range from Rabelais to Earnest Hemingway, Ian Littlewood interweaves these impressions with his own informative commentary to offer the reader district by district a wonderfully evocative glimpse of the streets, squares and buildings of paris.
