**Signed by Author inside front cover!**
Adriaan van Dis lived in Paris for more than seven years and he still feels connected to that city and tries to spend half of his time there. He rents a chambre de bonne, where some of his books are stored and from which he walks through the city week in week out. He is invisible and explores areas where no tourists usually come. For him, Paris is an ever-changing city: colored, torn and full of hidden histories. He goes boxing with the son of his maid from Sri Lanka, visits the variety show with a withered dancer, wanders with old witnesses along loaded addresses and looks behind the shutters where the illegal immigrants work. The new Europe is unfolding before his eyes. Van Dis walks around the adventure and reports on it in a diary and stories. He brings the best together in Stadsliefde.
