Biographie de l'auteur :

Andrew Hussey was born in 1963. He first went to Paris in the late 1970s, fired up by the punk revolution in his home town of Liverpool and with a thirst for anarchy and adventure. His first taste of Paris was busking in the metro: he was hooked. He has since lived and worked in Manchester, Lyons, Paris, Aberystwyth, Madrid and Barcelona, writing on the Nineties Parisian fashion for suicides, anarchy, radical Islam, art terrorism, Situationism, football, pornography and The Fall for a wide range of magazines and newspapers. Andrew Hussey is a contributing editor of the Observer Sports Magazine, and Head of French and Comparative Literature at the University of London in Paris.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Paris is the city of light and the city of darkness - a place of ceaseless revolution and reinvention that for two thousand years has drawn those with the highest ideals and the lowest morals to its teeming streets. In Andrew Hussey's wonderful book we encounter the myriad citizens whose stories have shaped Paris: the nineteenth-century flaneurs aimlessly wandering Haussman's new streets; survivors and victims of ravaging plagues; the builders of Notre Dame Cathedral; those who turned the River Seine red with blood on St Bartholomew's Day; and the many others whose lives have imprinted themselves on a city that has always aroused strong emotions.

Description du livre Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United States, 2008. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. 228 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Vivid, informed, delectably readable an enlightened introduction to the city s best-kept secrets. No visitor to France should go without it. Sunday Times (UK)Paris captures everyone s imaginations: It s a backdrop for Proust s fictional pederast, Robert Doisneau s photographic kiss, and Edith Piaf s serenaded soldier-lovers; a home as much to romance and love poems as to prostitution and opium dens. The city s dynamic, conflicted identity is visible everywhere between cobblestones, in bars, on the metro. Andrew Hussey brings to life the urchins and artists who ve left their marks on the city, filling in the gaps of a history that affected the disenfranchised as much as the nobility. Paris: The Secret History ranges across centuries, movements, and cultural and political beliefs, from Napoleon s overcrowded cemeteries to Balzac s nocturnal flight from his debts. Hussey takes us on a picaresque journey through royal palaces, brothels, and sidewalk cafes, uncovering the rich, exotic, and often lurid history of the world s most beloved city.
