Read an Excerpt


'In manners too, Paris took its cues from a court and aristocracy that liked to fool around, while London, except for a refreshing Hogarthian interlude in the 18th century, stayed generally under the influence of its serious and respectable merchants; instead of sexual tolerance, duels and the occasional revolution, it settled for Protestantism, tea and early closing hours.'
