A book party in the tunnels of Paris

With limited room aboveground, many clubs and restaurants expand downward Paris, drawing people into spaces once reserved for wine.
At a book party in another quarry, artist Michel Chevereau (above, wearing headlamp) and writer Jack Manini (on Chevereau's left) sign copies of their graphic novel Le Diable Vert. Set in and under Paris during the Nazi occupation, it combines history—Resistance fighters hid in the tunnels—with folktales of a subterranean green devil.
