Item description for Insider's Paris (Insiders) by Mark Cramer...
Paris --- the City of Light --- is regarded by many as one of the most romantic cities in the world. Once a Roman settlement, Paris and its meandering Seine River has developed into a cosmopolitan city of majestic boulevards, mysterious passageways, impressive monuments and unparalleled works of art. In Insider's Paris, author Mark Cramer explores little-known aspects of a selection of the city's famous and not-so-famous personalities and landmarks. His collection of captivating stories will make you pause, think and appreciate the city in its historical totality. From freethinking philosophers to great literary minds, from the Paris of yesteryear to the friendly, close-knit ambience of the quartiers and from the brothels along Rue Saint-Denis to imposing architectural feats, Insider's Paris will allow you to discover --- and experience --- the true spirit of the City of Light.

Another Gem from Cramer Nov 23, 2005
My favorite travel book since Cramer wrote "Funkytowns" many years ago. This is the book about Paris for travellers that want to see the quirkiness of the great city. It will make the next Paris trip an enriching experience. It's also just a great Sunday afternoon read.
