Product Details


“Amid the intellectual murkiness of the European scene, a few bright flames are burning: as witness the work of Eric Hazan.”
New Left Review

“Hazan’s scrupulous readings of Balzac bring 19th-century Paris to life, shedding light on the social friction between old money and the nouveau riche that shaped the city in the wake of the 1830 July Revolution. It’s an enchanting literary love letter to the City of Lights.”
Publishers Weekly
