Setting Description:
Paris has long caught the eye of the world’s intellectual elite, from religious tolerance and the Edict of Nantes to the American émigrés population of the 1920s. Modern Paris is attempting to resolve its new identity with the old, with the population rise of blacks, Arabs, Roma, and other minority groups. The backdrop for this modern cultural shift is several centuries worth of art, architecture, and literature, as well as the stories of the struggling artists who produced them.
