Overview

We'll Always Have Paris: Sex and Love in the City of Light by John Baxter

For more than a century, pilgrims from all over the world seeking romance and passion have made their way to the City of Light. The seductive lure of Paris has long been irresistible to lovers, artists, epicureans, and connoisseurs of the good life. Globe-trotting film critic and writer John Baxter heard her siren song and was bewitched. Now he offers readers a witty, audacious, scandalous behind-the-scenes excursion into the colorful all-night show that is Paris -- interweaving his own experience of falling in love, with a delightfully salacious tour of the sultry Parisian corners most guidebooks ignore: from the literary cafés of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and de Beauvoir to the brothels where Dietrich and Duke Ellington held court, where Salvador Dali sated his fantasies, and Edward VII kept a sumptuous champagne bath for his favorite girls.

Following his ladylove to Paris, John Baxter recounts his integration into Parisian society while exploring the city's rich and uninhibited culture. With keen insight and impeccable research, John has written and engrossing memoir of his life in present Paris alongside historical anecdotes of a mesmerizing and sophisticated people's past. This is a highly readable, sometimes humorous, informative narrative.

Any book written with first hand knowledge of Paris has my interest but the problem is to hold my interest without seeming like a travel log. The author followed his love to her hometown of Paris and the story follows the travails of newly weds and his adaptation from Australia to Paris. Quite a stretch. Written with humor and honesty. It rang true for me. And held my interest without gimmicks.

If you can enjoy stories about someone's interesting life without thinking he's a bit of a braggart, you will enjoy this. I did.
