This book is a celebration, a gracious vision. Booley’s South Africa shows ordinary people caught at a crossroads, entangled in a confused unity. He brings the beauty of humanity through all the difference of religion, culture, class and gender diversity. His character and style reveal an unbridled optimism, not to mention a casual touch of irony.
Les Brasseries de Paris, the first volume in Henk van Cauwenbergh’s much-talked-about series on cities, has been out of print for quite some time now. High time, therefore, to devote a new book to the creative and frivolous city of lights that is so dear to him. In this Paris Revisited, he presents an up-to-date picture of the atmosphere that Paris exudes today and tomorrow.
