The Books of Ellen Williams & Steve Radlauer


"The book reveals the otherwise vanished city where 19th-century Paris—with all its romance, history and beauty—still exists."
Paris Notes

"…transports diners back to a vanished world of artists and writers."
—Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

"This charming little book captures the essence of the City of Light in all its glory and will discover the tea salon frequented by Marcel Proust and the café where Hemingway supped on garlicky pork sausage....But most of all, savor the details of an earlier Paris: the Paris of nicotine-stained stone walls, tiled floors that lead to secret underground passageways or red velour banquettes beneath stained glass ceiling panels."
—The Chicago Tribune

"...a delicious little book...the perfect armchair read...I am certainly resolved never again to go to Paris without it."
