A cultural history of one of Paris's most fascinating and variegated areas, whose history can be summarized as 'from riches to rags and back again.' From beating heart of fashionable Paris in the Middle Ages to run-down, largely Jewish neighbourhood and post-restoration chic gay habitat, the Marais has probably undergone more major changes in its identity than any other Paris quartier.

A Corner in the Marais traces the architectural and social development of the City of Lights from its origins as a Roman settlement, through major redevelopments brought about by Henri IV and Baron Haussmann, to the present renovation of old neighborhoods. It begins with Alex Karmel and his French wife realizing a longstanding dream: buying an apartment in the Marais, Paris's celebrated historic district, the site of some of its oldest and most picturesque buildings. It soon becomes clear that their new home, which has witnessed six centuries of French life, offers a fresh and lively vantage point from which to view the city's history, revealing information that will surprise even the most confirmed Francophile. The book concludes with a "walking tour" of the Marais, in which the principal buildings are discussed with brisk authority. Karmel never loses sight of the human details - whether royal feuding, commercial advantage, or family chicanery - that have played their role in shaping Paris as we now know it. Illustrated throughout with photographs and period engravings, A Corner in the Marais is ideal reading for anyone who loves exploring the hidden byways of vieux Paris and experiencing history from a very personal viewpoint.

In the city of lights, Paris, the art capital of the world, how can one man stand above the rest? Ever since young Sebastian heard of his grandfather's chance meeting with the great Victor Hugo in 1877, he had been interested in literature, paintings, and poetry. Wandering around various libraries and museums at an early age only stirred that curiosity into an immense passion within him, a deep love and desire for art. After realizing his dream of opening a gallery in the Le Marais district of Paris, Sebastian faces one hurdle after another. Bad luck, Betrayal, revenge, and fierce competition carry him to the verge of total collapse and failure, but through it all, one question remained: How much of his life would Sebastian sacrifice for art, his first true love?
