Reviews

"An entertaining mix of amusing autobiography and fluent expertise. ... Baxter makes after-dark visits to the sites of once fashionable brothels and jazz clubs, follows the scent of perfume, and sumptuously indulges his passion for food, writing, at each turn, with wit and rapture."--Booklist
A MAIN SELECTION OF THE QUALITY PAPERBACK BOOK CLUB--*
"Charming. ... An entertaining meditation with plenty of digressions and detours into nocturnal Paris that should appeal to France lovers everywhere. ... A sharp-eyed, unsentimental look at the City of Light, its dark corners and midnight blues."--Chicago Tribune
"This is armchair travel at its very best. Baxter, whose knowledge of Paris's recent cultural history is vast, is a worthy guide. Fascinating stories and anecdotes. ... Readers will emerge from the experience of this book feeling like well-traveled experts."--Library Journal (starred review)
