High on the northern edge of Paris, Montmartre has always attracted bohemians, political radicals, artists, and hedonists. Lifting the curtain on a district that visitors to Paris seldom see, the author of The Most Beautiful Walk in the World wanders from the tumbledown workshops of the Bateau Lavoir in which Picasso and Braque created Cubism to Clichy's Cabaret of Nothingness, where guests dined at coffins under lamps of human bones. Illustrated throughout, this history serves as a guide to the neighborhood—home of the Basilica of Sacré Coeur but also the Moulin Rouge—as well as a tribute to those who lived, loved, and created there, namely Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker, Salvador Dalí, Henry Miller, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
