Gillian Tindall takes us along the banks of London’s long-buried Fleet River, past wells and into public houses to reveal the real but fascinating history of its tenants, traders, freeholders and landlords. Unique book about the Left Bank and five generations of a family-all of whom left their footprints in the same narrow streets, and all of whom found refuge and rejuvenation in Paris. This unique and intensely involving book evokes the texture and atmosphere of a hidden Paris which has survived against all the odds of time and chance. Gillian Tindall is well known for her ability to breathe a passionate life into the generations of those who have walked this earth before us.
