After writing about the differences between modern-day Britain and France, journalist Agnès Poirier turns her attention to Paris of the past, exploring the artistic and intellectual history of the city during a decade that spanned the Second World War and the early years of peace. The author brings the Left Bank of that era vividly to life through a cast of colourful characters who lived in the district including Simone de Beauvoir, Juliette Gréco, Miles Davis and Norman Mailer. Poirier weaves together the people, ideas and places that characterised Paris at that time – and if possible, it sounds even more fantastic than it does today.
