Insider's Paris

  By: Mark Cramer

Mark Cramer's new book, Insider's Paris will be reaching bookstores some time in September, with co-publishers in Singapore (Marshall Cavendish), USA and London. Mark knows that the real Paris is in it's neighborhoods and not in it's monumental icons. Paris is really a city of distinct villages. He's highlighted seven of the most seductive neighborhoods. The book includes authentic stories on each neighborhood along with tips, walking tours and stunning photos. In essence, this is a book on sense of place and quality of life, with each place viewed from distinct visual, narrative and historical perspectives, so that the reader gets a beneath-the- surface feel for the place. Cramer has been called "a seasoned expert in urban anatomy" by the acclaimed urbanologist Ray Oldenburg.
