THE STREETS OF PARIS
Susan Cahill, author of “Hidden Gardens of Paris”, talks with Big Blend Radio about her new book “THE STREETS OF PARIS: A Guide to the City of Light Following in the Footsteps of Famous Parisians Throughout History”.

For hundreds of years, the City of Light has set the stage for larger-than-life characters—from medieval lovers Héloïse and Abelard to the defiant King Henry IV to the brilliant scientist Madame Curie, beloved chanteuse Edith Piaf, and the writer Colette. In “THE STREETS OF PARIS: A Guide to the City of Light Following in the Footsteps of Famous Parisians Throughout History”, Susan Cahill recounts the lives of twenty-two famous Parisians and takes readers through the seductive streets of Paris to the quartiers where they lived and worked, visiting their homes, the scenes of their greatest triumphs and tragedies, their favorite cafes, bars, and restaurants, and the off-the-beaten-track places where they found inspiration and love.

Each chapter of THE STREETS OF PARIS opens with a beautiful four-color photographs by photographer Marion Ranoux, and every tour begins with a Metro stop and ends with a list of “Nearbys”—points of interest along the way, including cafes, gardens, squares, museums, bookstores, churches, and, of course, patisseries. From Sainte-Chapelle on the Ile de la Cite to the cemetery Pere Lachaise to Montmartre and the Marais, Cahill not only brings to life the bold characters of a tumultuous history and the arts of painting, music, sculpture, film, and literature, she takes readers on a relaxed walking tour in the footsteps of these celebrated Parisians.
