Summary:A collection of stories set in Paris. One is on the attitude of the inhabitants to the street people, another is on the daily commute into Paris from dormitory cities, a third is on the queer characters in the metro.

Taking the form of random journal entries over seven years, Exteriors captures the feeling of contemporary living on the outskirts of Paris. Poignantly lyrical, chaotic, and strangely alive.
