I read lots about Paris and found this book in the bibliography of another Paris book. Luckily one of the booksellers on Amazon had a really good used copy to sell. It was written in 1936. Richard describes his daily life while living in a 7th floor walkup on the Left Bank: people, famous places, markets, walking, historical events, street names. I read it a month ago but will probably begin rereading it as there's so much to ponder; I know I'll find it just as interesting the second time around. Definitely worth searching for among the smaller bookstores.
