From culinary treats (and catastrophes) to swoon-worthy romantic encounters (and heartbreaking mishaps), this anthology takes you on a journey through one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Visit this cosmopolitan metropolis through the eyes of Parisians, francophiles and travelers who fell in love with the city and still hold a piece of it in their hearts. That’s Paris: a glimpse into living, loving and laughing in the City of Light.

My Review

Lovely collection of short stories. Just about everything is covered, from love, heartbreak, cuisine, to dealing with bureaucracy and much more all set in vibrant Paris.

As a self-proclaimed Francophile I thoroughly enjoyed the variety and the unmistakable Paris vibe of each story, knowing the setting is Paris is intoxicating enough for this reader. There is something magical and seductive regarding Paris albeit in person or on paper, I was mesmerized from the start.

Every story was interesting and brought its individuality to the table. The unique writing style of the authors along with their varied perspectives added layers of interest. A story catching me off guard Half past Midnight by Didier Quémener, memorable, haunting.

Short story fans, Francophiles will undoubtedly appreciate this well crafted collection.
