I love Paris. Almost every essay transported me back to her. As I read, closed my eyes, I could feel, smell, almost touch the experiences of each writer. Even if you are not a fan of Paris you could certainly identify with more than one of the tales if you have ever been there. This book is definitley a must read and a great gift for a Parisian lover.

    a true taste of paris

    you cannot claim to love paris if this book is not among the books you have read. if you know someone who loves paris, get this book as a gift and you will be thanked at least thirty-two times. the essays are varied and cover a range of experiences and impressions. grab this book, a croissant, and espresso and take a small voyage to paris.
