Reviews

Praise for "You Lost Me There"

"Baldwin's prose is wise and nimble, clever without being self-conscious, true to the myriad voices of his characters . . . Moving and genuine." --"The Washington Post"


"A charming entry into the expat canon, this book is Baldwin's true story of moving to his favorite city in the world -- favorite to the tune of obsession, mind you -- and realizing it's not quite as he had imagined."--Emily Temple, "Flavorwire "

Baldwin proves that with the right attitude, everything in this perhaps most magically remembered of all cities is either beautiful, hilarious, or both, and his friendly voice and approachable style will grab those who want to be there and those who have never been." -- Annie Bostrom, " Booklist"

"A charming, hilarious account of "la vie Parisienne" as experienced by an observant young American . . . his vivid impressions of Paris and its people (expats included) are most engaging. Great fun and surprisingly touching. Great fun and surprisingly touching." "--Kirkus" (starred review)
