Vatard Sisters by J. K. Huysmans Vatard Sisters, Paperback (August 2012)

This novel is a story of two working-class sisters, but the main protagonist is Paris, suburban Paris, the Paris of railway stations, cheap restaurants and cafe-concerts, and the passages that describe the music-halls and crowds of the Avenue de Maine and the Boulevard Saint Michel have a visual immediacy."
