Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik
Paris to the Moon

Darnaway, January 1, 2011

This rejoicing on Paris must be a delight to most civilized readers - to those who love two countries - their own, and France, - and Greece, if I may be allowed to make it three. "Pace", Herbie, for my using my second word as a noun. Standards have fallen everywhere; from the C of E to French cuisine. My first guide to Paris said it is practically impossible to eat poorly in France. A couple of years later one read that it was becoming a possibility. Mr. Gopnik was not able to recover the lost in the nineties, but this book certainly gives fine hours to those not opposed to fondly picturing what he observed while he was living in Paris, and what some of us breathed in a few years earlier.
