Description

No one knows a city like the people who live there – so who better to relate the history of Paris than its inhabitants through the ages? Taking us from 1750 to the new millennium, Graham Robb’s Parisians is at once a book to read from cover to cover, to lose yourself in, to dip in and out of at leisure, and a book to return to again and again – rather like the city itself, in fact.For this collection of true stories the City of Paris awarded Graham the Medal of the City of Paris. ‘Quirky, amused and tres British’ Julian Barnes, author of The Sense of an Ending.
