Paris in Quotations is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.

Over the centuries, Paris has intrigued, revolted, scandalized and most of all captured the heart of many a visitor. For Dickens it is the'most extraordinary place in the world', for Hazlitt,'a beast of a city', and for French writers, the essence of civilization: 'I maintain that, for people of breeding, there is no salvation out of Paris.' claimed playwright Molière. Describing the capital variously as a city of lovers, gastronomy, fashion and filth, myriad quotations - sometimes poetic, sometimes humorous and always fizzing with insight - are collected here.
