The Flaneur - Edmund White

This is a "the writer and the city" series in which some of the finest writers of our time reveal secrets of the city they know best. Peter Carey did one on Sydney.

I have never read Edmund White, I thought this would be a light travel book with personal insight into daily life in Paris. It was a interesting read with good history and social comment on Paris and the world. But did not hit the mark for me, my expectations were elsewhere.
