When John Baxter moved from Los Angeles—a place with few changes of weather—to France, he experienced meteorological culture shock. Now a seasoned Parisian, Baxter draws here upon Paris's literary, cultural, and artistic past to paint an enthusiastic, opinionated portrait of the city. Touching upon the various ghosts of Paris past, from Ernest Hemingway and M.F.K. Fisher, and from Claude Debussy to Francois Mitterrand, Baxter's illustrated guide evokes the rhythms of the seasons in the City of Light, and the sense of wonder they can arouse for all who visit and live there.
