Eric Hazan's Walk Through Paris: A Map

In A Walk Through Paris, Eric Hazan leads us from Ivry to Saint-Denis, roughly following the meridian that divides Paris into east and west. He comments on both famous landmarks and obscure alleyways, providing historical anecdotes, geographical observations, and literary references, to allow us to regain knowledge of the city's revolutionary past, present, and future.
