On the Champs-Élysées, more than anywhere else, the mobility of spaces and things is permanent, and the mutations are constant. What is there today will have perhaps disappeared entirely by tomorrow.
Born in 1921, Jean-Paul Caracalla is the author of several works on Paris and on train-travel. In 1947 he gave up his career as a journalist and joined the Compagnie des Wagon-Lits where he revived the publication La Revue des Voyages, which had been out of print since 1940. He thus came into contact with some of the great names in French literature: Cendrars, Chardonne, Morand, Déon, Nourissier, Louise de Vilmorin… Secretary General of the Prix des Deux-Magots since 1972, he is currently a member of the reading committee of Éditions Denoël.
“An enjoyable stroll between legend and history”
“When it comes to discovering the most illustrious neighbourhoods of the capital, only Caracalla’s guides are worth consulting!”
“It makes one want to cry out: This, this is Paris!”
