This week Publishers Weekly publishes an interview with me in advance of the release of Paris Reborn on April 2.
The pieces discusses Paris and its history, Napoleon III, Georges-Eugène Haussmann, and some of the surprising aspects of the Second Empire rebuilding of the French capital recounted in Paris Reborn.
The Death and Life of Great French Cities: PW Talks with Stephane Kirkland is available on line, but the full piece is only accessible to Publishers Weekly subscribers.
