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.
