“A particularly readable and brilliantly compiled collection. The voices of French intellectuals–artists, dramatists, filmmakers, actors, writers, and philosophers–mingle in this uniquely constructed volume of interviews and commentary.”–Boston Globe

Melinda Camber Porter has interviewed the most prominent Parisian cultural figures of the ’70s and ’80s. The dominant trends in French artistic and political thought emerge vividly from an array of portraits and dialogues. As a whole, Through Parisian Eyes creates a seamless and revealing depiction of French culture.

Includes: Francois Truffaut, Costa-Gavras, Eugene Ionesco, Andre Malraux, Alain Resnais, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Louis Malle, Eric Rohmer, Marguerite Duras, Bernard-Henri Levy, Jean-Paul Sartre, Yves Montand, Jean-Francois Revel, Francoise Sagan, and others

“Porter’s eclectic gathering covers topics that include French xenophobia, politics, feminism, creativity, intellectualism, structuralism, imagination, and the arts, providing an area of interest for almost every palate. . . . A well-rounded, intelligent look at the contemporary Parisian spirit.” —San Francisco Chronicle
