Luc Sante: ‘The Other Paris’

Episode twenty-three: Luc Sante ‘The Other Paris’


This is lovely treat  – Author Luc Sante takes us on a walk through the Paris of the nineteenth century, a very different place to now.  The fields outside the ‘wall’ he  mentions are now where the motorway known as the Peripherique encircles the city, and thousands of people live there.Luc’s sonorous delivery makes this a very meditative aural experience, Ken Naughton’s discreet piano fills in spaces.

Australian duo ‘Bebe et Lulu’ gives the end a french flair.

Music Tracks:Ken Naughton , – Variations – Baby et Lulu- ‘Paris’ and ‘Paris se regarde’

Luc Sante was recorded at the Sydney writers Festival 2016.
