9780374299323: The Other Paris: The People's City, Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries

A trip through Paris as it will never be again-dark and dank and poor and slapdash and truly bohemian

Paris, the City of Light, the city of fine dining and seductive couture and intellectual hauteur, was until fairly recently always accompanied by its shadow: the city of the poor, the outcast, the criminal, the eccentric, the willfully nonconforming. In The Other Paris, Luc Sante gives us a panoramic view of that second metropolis, which has nearly vanished but whose traces are in the bricks and stones of the contemporary city, in the culture of France itself, and, by extension, throughout the world.Drawing on testimony from a great range of witnesses-from Balzac and Hugo to assorted boulevardiers, rabble-rousers, and tramps-Sante, whose thorough research is matched only by the vividness of his narration, takes the reader on a whirlwind tour. Richly illustrated with more than three hundred images, The Other Paris scuttles through the knotted streets of pre-Haussmann Paris, through the improvised accommodations of the original bohemians, through the whorehouses and dance halls and hobo shelters of the old city.
A lively survey of labor conditions, prostitution, drinking, crime, and popular entertainment, and of the reporters, realiste singers, pamphleteers, and poets who chronicled their evolution, The Other Paris is a book meant to upend the story of the French capital, to reclaim the city from the bons vivants and the speculators, and to hold a light to the works and lives of those expunged from its center by the forces of profit.

Review:

Praise for "Low Life" "A tour-de-force . . . [Sante] has a novelist's eye for detail and an aesthete's taste for anecdotes . . . "Low Life" is unquestionably a book that can be read for instruction about New York as well as for pleasure." --David Rieff, "The Times Literary Supplement"
Praise for "Low Life"

A tour-de-force . . . [Sante] has a novelist's eye for detail and an aesthete's taste for anecdotes . . . "Low Life" is unquestionably a book that can be read for instruction about New York as well as for pleasure.--David Rieff "The Times Literary Supplement on Low Life "

Nowadays, the old crowded, swarming, surly cities are at least half-forgotten. But in this great chronicle Luc Sante recalls when Paris was rougher, when the poor, the tough, the unregulated, the underworld, thrived there; maybe the city was also less rough, in that there was room for nearly everyone all the way down the social ladder. Hanging over "The Other Paris" is the contemporary curse of cities that perhaps hit Paris first, of cities that have become bland transnational stopping places for the privileged. Magisterial as ever, Sante returns us to the flavor, texture, savor, shouts, and clashes of the bygone city.--Rebecca Solnit

This brilliant, beautifully written essay is the finest book I have ever read about Paris. "Ever." Thank you, Luc Sante.--Paul Auster

"The Other Paris" is a heartbreaking spectacle, immense in intellectual and political scope and emotional reach. Peopled by crooks and movie stars, gamblers and thinkers, the world's premier city of dreams is rendered, through Luc Sante's fine hand, historian's eye, and poet's heart, into a place we hardly knew-a world of hitherto unknown mysteries and realities. A grand journey in an epic work.--Hilton Als

'We have forgotten what a city was, ' Luc Sante provocatively writes about Paris. By the last chapter of this absorbing book, we are convinced. Washerwomen and ragpickers, bohemians and clochards, anarchists and apaches, all play their part in this alternative urban history. This is not the Gay Paree of Maurice Chevalier, though he too makes an appearance.--Witold Rybczynski

"Sante's knowledge of the voluminous Paris literature is prodigious . . . Sante's great gift is his ability to draw on the 'verbal photography' of previous writers to send the reader back in time." --Arthur Goldhammer, "BookForum"

"The elevation of the obscure and the overlooked, the discarded or hidden or marginal, to artistic status or cultural prominence has become a cottage industry for artists and writers of late, but as an anti-ghostbuster, Sante is in a class by himself . . . the pleasures to be had from the fruits of his research are considerable . . .

"'The city, ' [Sante] insists, ' compact and curled within itself, a labyrinth had to be played like a game.'

Throughout "The Other Paris," he invokes the figure of the "flaneur," which is to say the one who walks to connect to the city through the soles of his or her feet . . . Here, we see the sneaky genius of "The Other Paris," which, like "Low Life," conceals the complexity of its structure, masquerading as a popular history . . . until it reveals that it has been about circling all along." David L. Ulin, "Los Angeles Times"

Sante s knowledge of the voluminous Paris literature is prodigious . . . his great gift is his ability to draw on the verbal photography of previous writers to send the reader back in time. Arthur Goldhammer, "BookForum"

"The Other Paris" is both eulogy and paean to the matrixes of anarchy, creativity, crime, and serendipity that once gave shape to the City of Light. Anna Wierner, "The New Republic"

[Sante] casts his lot with the ragpickers and streetwalkers, and his readers are better off for it. Dmitry Samarov, "The Chicago Tribune"

[Sante] has written a wonderfully rich book, packed with information, lively in style, evoking the turbulence of a vanished time and city. Allan Massie, "The Wall Street Journal"

"The good news is that Sante is a formidable guide to the Parisian past at ground and underground level . . .

Descripción Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Hardcover. 320 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.A trip through Paris as it will never be again--dark and dank and poor and slapdash and truly bohemianParis, the City of Light. The city of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, of soft cheese and fresh baguettes. Or so tourist brochures would have you believe. In The Other Paris, Luc Sante reveals the citys hidden past, its seamy underside--one populated by working and criminal classes that, though virtually extinct today, have shaped Paris over the past two centuries. Drawing on testimony from a great range of witnesses--from Balzac and Hugo to assorted boulevardiers, rabble-rousers, and tramps--Sante, whose thorough research is matched only by the vividness of his narration, takes the reader on a whirlwind tour. Richly illustrated with more than three hundred images, The Other Paris scuttles through the knotted streets of pre-Haussmann Paris; through the improvised accommodations of the original bohemians; through the massive garbage dump at Montfaucon, active until 1849, in which, at any given time the carcasses of 12, 000 horses . . . were left to rot. A wildly lively survey of labor conditions, prostitution, drinking, crime, and popular entertainment, of the reporters, raliste singers, pamphleteers, and poets who chronicled their evolution, The Other Paris is a book meant to upend the story of the French capital, to reclaim the city from the bon vivants and the speculators, and to hold a light to the works and days of the forgotten poor. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Nº de ref. de la librería 9780374299323
