Paris to the Moon
TRAVEL NARRATIVE 2001 PAPER 338 PAGES
This is the best collection of essays on Parisian life to appear in quite some time. Gopnik lived in Paris for several years, writing regular columns for The New Yorker. Two essays we especially recommend are "A Tale of Two Cafes" (about Cafe de Flore and Les Deux Magots) and "Trouble at the Tower," (which captures brilliantly the encounter of Parisian and American).
