Graham Robb is arguably the best biographer of France writing today. His “Discovery of France” won so many awards it would be difficult to enumerate them here. Now Robb has come out with “Parisians,” an adventure history of Paris. But it is the Paris you never knew. From the Revolution to the present Robb has distilled a series of astonishing true narratives including an account of Napoleon’s first sexual encounter. For all those who love the city of light and love, you will be enchanted even further by Graham Robb and “Parisians.” Join us as I talk with this preeminent biographer on The Frumkes Show.
