'Left Bank': Agnes Poirier delves into Paris's golden age

It's the Paris of poets, painters and post-war effervescence: the Left Bank or Rive Gauche is forever associated with the artists and intellectuals who filled the cafés and bars of the French capital in the mid-twentieth century. Writer and journalist Agnes Poirier has plunged into that golden age for her latest book, a historical study of the personalities and the exchange of ideas that shaped French society for decades to come.


With cameos from Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, James Baldwin and Juliette Gréco, "Left Bank" serves as a stroll along the boulevards of the cultural capital of the 1940s.
