Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world. But do you know ...Which is the most romantic spot to say 'je't'aime'? And the sexiest? Where to see fantastic art, away from all the crowds? Why Parisian men feel compelled to pee in the street? How to choose a hotel room where you might actually get a good night's sleep? Stephen Clarke goes behind the scenes to reveal everything Parisians know about their city - but don't want to tell you.

Stephen Clarke lives in Paris, where he divides his time between writing and not writing. While researching Paris Revealed, his 'non-writing' time has been spent interrogating Parisians about their bizarre habits, and revisiting his favourite places in the city to make sure they're still worthy of being his favourites. His first novel, A Year in the Merde, became a word-of-mouth hit in 2004. Since then he has published three further Merde novels, Talk to the Snail, an indispensable guide to understanding the French, and a history book, 1000 Years of Annoying the French, which was a Sunday Times bestseller and reached number one in Amazon UK's humour chart.
