This is a writer who not only documents history but also employs the power of storytelling to dissect and disseminate the implications of political upheaval on everyday life in Paris.
'Mated from the Morgue' is recommended for those who wish to immerse themselves in the Paris of old, where the stoic rigors of history meet the chaotic dance of bohemian streets.
