Product description

Review

“This is not a guidebook … [Hasan] sees the beauty, of course, and sniffs at some recent attempts at ‘architecture,’ but he’s most dedicated to uncovering the spots where revolutionary blood has been scrubbed from the cornerstones of pre- and post-Haussmannian buildings—the spirit of revolt the city’s planners still try to keep at bay.” New York Times

“Eric Hazan’s elegant, characteristically learned account of his journey through contemporary Paris, written in a tone both intimate and authoritative, is at once a companionably unhurried evocation of the city’s rich, radical past and—at a time when capital is dramatically reorganizing its topography—a bracingly urgent intervention in debates about the city’s future. As André Breton might have observed, there really are no lost steps here.”
—Matthew Beaumont, author of Nightwalking

“An ardent student of the anatomy of the city, Hazan is a keen observer with a remarkable memory: despite his limitations, he has written an unmissable account of Paris’s unique and defiant physiognomy.”
—Lauren Elkin, Guardian

“In tracing a continuity of resistance and its presence within the contradictions of the contemporary city, Hazan makes a compelling argument that ‘the people have not lost the battle of Paris’ … This book similarly brings the solitary act of reading and the social experience of urban life into constant dialogue. Passages from Balzac, Baudelaire and André Breton come to mind at different street corners, verbal illuminations reflecting the ambience of a particular locale. In these enlightened pages, Hazan deftly guides the reader through a Paris where history and literature animate the lived experience of the present.”
—Eugene Brennan, Washington Post

“Hazan is much concernced with riot, insurrection, protest, and revolution. He is, naturally, on the side of the proletariat … A Walk Through Paris is sometimes a work of urbanism, sometimes a subversive history book, sometimes a kind of tourist guide.”

—Geoff Nicholson, Los Angeles Review of Books
