In his collective portrait of the common people, Roche offers a rich and fascinating description of their lives—their housing, food, dress, financial dealings, literature, domestic life, and leisure time. Roche’s highly readable style and use of contemporary quotations enliven the reader’s view of eighteenth-century Paris and Parisians.
