The Seven Ages of Paris by Alistair Horne

As the title suggests, The Seven Ages of Paris is a non-fiction book about the history of Paris. Historian Alistair Horne tells the story of the City of Light, from its Roman founding as Lutetia through to the modern age. He centers his narrative around the men that led Paris during each age, including Philippe Auguste, Henry IV, Louis XIV, Napoleon, and Charles de Gaulle. It doesn't just capture the story of the city, but the fabric of life during each age, and how its constant invasion and liberation contributed to the city's character and the culture and customs of its inhabitants.
