An engaging and at times humorous and dark look at the secret history of Paris the history of this city as seen by the poor the disposed the criminals the prostitutes poets artists and the rebels throughout this cities history It s a fun romp through history and the city travelling to places and areas known and unknown and learning some interesting aspects of the history behind those places and people The author takes great relish in telling many of his stories like this about a certain bar in Paris La Palette in the Introduction of the book It is exclusive and can be intimidating The waiters share private jokes with regulars to the rest of us they serve sarcasm and contempt with evident relish but no extra charge The legend of Genevieve saving Paris from the hordes of Attila But then Attila suddenly and miraculously turned his attention further south to the richer and prestigious prizes that could be easily won cynics of the period slyly suggested that Attila s change of course was because he had been told the women of Paris were not worth raping In 1408 the Provost marshal grand prevot had hung two university students for murder but after a lengthy court case the university won their case and the courts ordered that the two rotting corpses be conveyed to the convent of Les Mathurins to be laid to rest Most chilling was the punishment demanded by the university lawyer who ordered Guillaume to kiss both students on the lips to show his contrition as the stinking bodies were taken down The order was carried out A story about Catherine de Medicis But Catherine could be sceptical and scoffed easily at astrologers who made mistakes Tis a pity he couldn t see his own future she remarked of one notorious charlatan who had been robbed and killed outside the city limits During the siege of Paris conducted by Henri IV Henri de Navarre Most melancholy of all was the tale of a noblewoman a widow whose two children had died of hunger Unable to buy bread she had roasted the children with the aid of her housekeeper and over two weeks eaten them every evening tears streaming down her cheeks Unsurprisingly the woman and her servant died within days So in conclusion this book may not be for everyone s taste and the research may not be as thorough and as detailed as some would like but overall it was a decent and enjoyable account of a city that I love to visit and I felt I learnt a few things on the way
