Paris is one of a handful of cities on earth you should endeavor to know over the course of a lifetime, not just in one or two or even a half-dozen visits. Paris is not lightly seduced, nor to be trifled with. And yet, as heavy with tradition and culture as it is, the City of Light has bestowed on millions the gift of the incandescent present, an image or experience into which all life is condensed, and reflected upon for years to come. The stories in Travelers’ Tales Paris throw open the creaky door of history and let the light of this marvelous city flood out.
Notable authors include: John Gregory Dunne, Ina Caro, Mort Rosenblum, Julian Green, Edmund White, and Jan Morris.
