5/5
18 newly translated French stories paint a vivid portrait of Paris’s streets; capturing their evolving life, character and changing residents. Stories range from the 19th century to the present with 1 newly written tale of the city, based on the last days of the poet Gérard de Nerval. Simenon's Maigret is called upon to solve a mystery on the Boulevard Beaumarchais; a flâneur learns some French history through second-hand objects retrieved from the Seine; a nineteenth-century affair in the Rue de Miromesnil goes badly wrong; a body is discovered on the steps of the smallest street in Paris. The book mixes tales by well-known writers such as Colette, Maupassant, Didier Daeninckx, and Simenon, and less familiar names such as Francis Carco, Aurélie Filipetti, and Arnaud Baignot.

Paperback, 248 pages, 47 black and white illustrations.
19.5 x 12.7cm.
