Description
The seductive lure of Paris has long been irresistible to lovers, artists, epicureans, and connoisseurs of the good life, as well as to anyone who knows someone with a Paris apartment. Beginning with his own story of falling in love with the city, Australian-born film critic and writer John Baxter, a resident since 1990, offers this witty, audacious behind-the-scenes excursion into the all-night show that is Paris. It includes a delightfully salacious tour of the sultry Parisian corners most guidebooks ignore, from the literary cafés of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Simone de Beauvoir to the brothels where Marlene Dietrich and Duke Ellington held court, where Salvador Dalí sated his fantasies, and Edward VII kept a champagne bath for his favorite girls.

"Baxter intelligently connects Paris venues to various films, French and American, familiar and obscure. Baxter loves to focus on Paris's erotic history, and he does a particularly stunning job of explicating Josephine Baker's electric effect on the French psyche, attributing to her nude dances a profound restructuring of French attitudes to sexuality. Foodies will revel in Baxter's portrayals of Parisian restaurants' obsession with offal. Baxter's mordant humor is put to good use in his observations on Paris's ubiquitous dogs and their ton-a-day droppings on the capital's chic byways."—Booklist
