Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'He presents the French, particularly Parisians, in contrast to the English, sometiems flatteringly, and with sly, anecdotal wit that contributes to stereotypes sill relevant to both races. His Paris still exists in our imagination.' —Iain Finlayson, ‘The Times’
