Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unleash your senses in a strangely illuminated City of Light. Amid the Paris you know and love unheard-of-temptations abound. If your visit to the Cafe Conjugal ends in a spat (though it's strictly against their rules), you can make up at the luscious and fantastic Museum of Lips and Books, or catch the Metro Marquis de Sade for Arse Poetica, La Toucherie, and further wondrous adventures. From the disconcerting Brasserie Loplop, steal your chair for the Pont Neuf cinema, whose movies flow onto the Seine. Your curiosity sated for the day, check into Hotel des Etrangers, where phantoms change the sheets - and your room - in the middle of the night. Unhandy glossaries help you talk your way through these provocative encounters, with such apropos comments as J'aimerais sortir avec votre hyene pour boire un verre (I'd like to take your hyena out for a drink). A rare and rowdy entertainment, at once a tour of imagined Paris and an artistic tour de force, Paris Out of Hand is a captivating traveler's tale that dares its readers to embrace their own desires.
