Praise

“Eric Hazan’s elegant, characteristically learned account of his journey through contemporary Paris, written in a tone both intimate and authoritative, is at once a companionably unhurried evocation of the city’s rich, radical past and—at a time when capital is dramatically reorganizing its topography—a bracingly urgent intervention in debates about the city’s future. As André Breton might have observed, there really are no lost steps here.”
—Matthew Beaumont, author of Nightwalking

“An ardent student of the anatomy of the city, Hazan is a keen observer with a remarkable memory: despite his limitations, he has written an unmissable account of Paris’s unique and defiant physiognomy.”
—Lauren Elkin, Guardian

“In tracing a continuity of resistance and its presence within the contradictions of the contemporary city, Hazan makes a compelling argument that ‘the people have not lost the battle of Paris’ … This book similarly brings the solitary act of reading and the social experience of urban life into constant dialogue. Passages from Balzac, Baudelaire and André Breton come to mind at different street corners, verbal illuminations reflecting the ambience of a particular locale. In these enlightened pages, Hazan deftly guides the reader through a Paris where history and literature animate the lived experience of the present.”
—Eugene Brennan, Washington Post
