Paris, the City of Lights, has always had its dark side: a city of the poor, the outcast, the criminal, the eccentric and the nonconformist. Richly illustrated with more then 300 haunting historic images, this poetic essay takes the reader on a journey through its dance halls and whorehouses, its absinthe bars and hobo shelters, finding their traces in the bricks and stones of the modern city, reclaiming it from the haute bourgeoisie and the property speculators.
