Graham Robb was born in Manchester in 1958 and is a former fellow of Exeter College, Oxford. He has published widely on French literature and history. His 2007 book <i><b>The Discovery of France</b></i> won both the Duff Cooper and Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prizes. For <i><b>Parisians</b></i> (2010) the City of Paris awarded him the Grande Médaille de la Ville de Paris. He lives on the English-Scottish border. <b><i>"Elegant, entertaining and occasionally brilliant... As this book powerfully demonstrates, French history is nothing if not built on paradox and contradiction. Most importantly, Robb reminds us why France still matters." </i>Observer</b>
