Lindsey Tramuta’s “ The New Paris” was a great read; fun and interesting at the same time. She introduces the reader to some changes in Paris that are occurring these days, changes in eating out, coffee, drinks, sweets, products, and places in the city. Lindsey presents herself as a sort of self-described “amateur” of sorts when it comes to some of the new things that she describes in her book. When she outlines the new craft beer movement, she admits that she, along with most French people, used to think of beer simply as a low cost party drink and not the fine tasting brews that are being created today. When she expresses being surprised by the horrible taste of the classic Parisian espresso, she is describing what most tourists thought of their first taste, and our hope in the modern baristas bringing delicious tasting coffee to Paris at last. If you have experience with any of the topics she presents, you recognize the nuances that Lindsey mentions about each one. If you are new to the topics, you feel as though you have the ability to learn and experience them just as Lindsey did. You feel as though they are within reach and not at all unattainable. Her writing is very personable. It makes you feel like a friend is explaining these new trends to you, not an academic high-brow who is just reporting the latest news. I loved the parts that she added about her personal life, about moving to Paris, her thoughts and observations, and times with her husband.
