The Flaneur: A Stroll Through the Paradoxes of Paris

The Flaneur - Edmund White “And no wonder Paris, land of novelty and distraction, is the great city of the flaneur – that aimless stroller who loses himself in the crowd, who has no destination and goes wherever caprice or curiosity dictates his or her steps.”What is there to say about Paris that has not already been said? Ask any person on the street and he will tell you Paris is the best. And the worst. Alive. And dying. But when one is asked to write about Paris, one must. And thus this book. White uses the pages of this slim book to do this, to tell once again how Paris is the best and the worst and alive and dying.
