Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paris--with its subtle moods, elegant charm, and sensual allure--inspires writers and visitors like no other city. A Place in the World Called Paris, now in a beautiful paperback edition, collects the twentieth century's most distinguished authors writing on the unique facets of the City of Light. This anthology of more than 170 short excerpts from fiction, poetry, essays, and memoirs presents fresh and unexpected views of Paris: Franz Kafka on riding the Metro; Truman Capote on visiting Colette in her apartment in the Palais-Royal; Jane Kramer on Parisian style; Claude Debussy on the Luxembourg Gardens; E.B. White on the Liberation; and Maya Angelou on Paris nightlife. With an evocative foreword by Susan Sontag, and atmospheric charcoal drawings by Miles Hyman, this is a treasured volume for anyone who remembers Paris, from literature, or from their own walks along the Seine.
