White spent many years in Paris during the eighties and nineties and has stamped for us his personal perceptions of the streets of Paris. As a flaneur, an idle stroller, he lingers in quiet corners, walks through hidden histories and fleshes out the mythical personalities of this most magical of cities. White’s prose is eloquent and the bibliography he includes whets one’s appetite for even more Parisian confidences.
