Left Bank: Art, Passion, and the Rebirth of Paris

Agnès Poirier’s Left Bank (Bloomsbury) is a captivating portrait of those who lived, loved, fought, played and flourished in Paris between 1940 and 1950 and whose intellectual and artistic output still influences us today. Agnès Poirier will be talking about her book with philosopher and writer A.C.Grayling, whose most recent book Democracy and Its Crisis (Oneworld) is an urgent exploration of the challenges facing democracy today.

“A tour de force, Left Bank weaves together so many people, ideas, trends, occurrences, and above all Parisian places, into a tapestry of fascinations – a distillation of the essence of an amazing time… the best of its kind I have ever read.” — A.C. Grayling about Left Bank
