Summary, etc.:
"The former Paris bureau chief for the New York Times invites us on a tour of her favorite Parisian street. "I can never be sad on the Rue des Martyrs," Sciolino explains as she celebrates the neighborhood's rich history and vibrant lives : the Tunisian greengrocer, the husband-and-wife cheesemongers, the showman whose transvestite cabaret has run for more than half a century, the owner of a 100-year-old bookstore, the woman who repairs eighteenth-century mercury barometers; they make Paris come alive in all its unique majesty." -- Provided by the publisher.
