Join me and John as we discuss his career in Paris as a journalist,biographer, historian, flaneur and above all, raconteur.
 
Having dashed off several memoirs, several of which featured scathing comments about yours truly, he has now turned his attention the the arrondissements of Paris. Having now published, Montmartre, Saint-German and written Montparnasse, I figure that with seventeen more to go he should be busy well into his nineties.

In the second portrait of his series Great Parisian Neighborhoods,  John Baxter leads us on a whirlwind tour of Montmartre, the hill-top village that fired the greatest achievements of modern art while also provoking bloody revolution and the sexual misbehavior that made Paris synonymous with sin.

Bistros

No one should have a bad meal in Paris! Whether a 2-star restaurant or a local bistro there should always be an excellent rapport qualité prix– relationship between price and quality. At my favorites you will be treated as a regular and have a satisfying experience. Just tell them  “Terrance sent you.”
