Summary
"There are almost 200 entries in the addictive Everything (or almost everything) About Paris, a witty and sophisticated treasure trove of facts, histories, lists, records, quotations, and miscellaneous oddities that go well beyond trivia to include significant cultural enlightenment and a below-the-surface glimpse of what it means to be Parisian. Among the thousands of facts that most certainly haven't been assembled in one place anywhere else: the number of brothels, massage parlors and 'places of pleasure' listed in a 1922 guidebook; famous poisonings that occurred in Paris; addresses of the ten vineyards within the city limits; ten vintage aperitifs to order in bistros; imaginary Parisian streets that appear in novels; fines charged for municipal infractions (from feeding pigeons (35E) to appearing nude in a public place (35,000 E and imprisonment)); the history of the bikini, the cobblestones, the rooftops, and the trashcans of Paris; exploits staged at the Eiffel Tower from 1891 through 2010; innovative (unadopted) ideas proposed through the years to improve the quality of life in Paris: shut down museums and put the paintings in bars, turn churches into housing for the poor, and more ... and that's just for starters"--Provided by publisher
