With his celebrated biographies of Balzac, Rimbaud and Victor Hugo, not to mention his outstanding travelogue, The Discovery of France, Graham Robb has been a tireless champion of French history and culture.

He joins us to introduce his sparkling new book , Parisians, which recounts the astonishing history of the French capitol through the lives of some of its more eccentric inhabitants. From the top of the Eiffel Tower to the depths of the catacombs, Parisians encompasses intrigue, revolution and celebration to provide a richly entertaining portrait of a great city unlike any other.
