Since the days of the Lost Generation, Paris has always radiated cultural, political, and intellectual brilliance in the Anglophone imagination, maintaining its status as the cosmopolitan city par excellence throughout the 20th century to today. This collection brings together 79 writers from Britain, America, Australia, and New Zealand to explore this theme through short stories, essays, and poetry, in order to build up a diverse, multifaceted portrait of the French capital as viewed by English speakers today. Exploring both the city and its enduring image in our minds, the contributors include Tom McCarthy, Will Self, Brian Dillon, Joanna Walsh, Eley Williams, Max Porter, Sophie Mackintosh and Lauren Elkin.
