Gopnik describes his five-year adventure in Paris. Where alongside bringing up his infant son he struggles to experience the spirit and romance that had captured the likes of Stein and Hemingway before him.
In 1995, the Gopnik family left the familiar comforts and hassles of New York for the urbane glamour of Paris. For the next five years, the author filed his "Paris Journals" to the "New Yorker" and his sojourn traces a sentimental re-education in what it means to be an American in Paris.
