Elaborate Description

What the French thought about various events in France was the reason d’être of the book. A cultural reference to the time and place of mainly Parisian life. A plethora of topics ranging from what appears idle gossip to the prelude of WWII. The life and death of the rich, art, law and other cultural topics that made up Paris are given their space in this book. A short history of any particular event is given to facilitate and understanding of the topics.
