"A collection of all-new Paris-themed essays written by some of the biggest names in women's fiction, including Paula McLain, Therese Anne Fowler, Maggie Shipstead, and Lauren Willig, edited by Eleanor Brown, the New York Times bestselling author of The Weird Sisters and The Light of Paris. 'My time in Paris,' says New York Times-bestselling author Paula McLain (The Paris Wife), 'was like no one else's ever.' For each of the eighteen bestselling authors in this warm, inspiring, and charming collection of personal essays on the City of Light, nothing could be more true. While all of the women writers featured here have written books connected to Paris, their personal stories of the city are wildly different. Meg Waite Clayton (The Race for Paris) and M.J. Rose (The Book of Lost Fragrances) share the romantic secrets that have made Paris the destination for lovers for hundreds of years. Susan Vreeland (The Girl in Hyacinth Blue) and J. Courtney Sullivan (The Engagements) peek behind the stereotype of snobbish Parisians to show us the genuine kindness of real people. From book club favorites Paula McLain, Therese Anne Fowler (Z : A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald), and anthology editor Eleanor Brown (The Light of Paris) to mystery writer Cara Black (Murder in the Marais), historical author Lauren Willig (The Secret History of the Pink Carnation), and memoirist Julie Powell (Julie and Julia), these Parisian memoirs range from laugh-out-loud funny to wistfully romantic to thoughtfully somber and reflective. Perfect for armchair travelers and veterans of Parisian pilgrimages alike, readers will delight in these brand-new tales from their most beloved authors"--Provided by publisher.… (mais)

Very good armchair travelling. While I’m not particularly interested in any of the authors here’s individual works, these essays on Paris were very enjoyable. Not all of the authors were enamoured of the place but it was still good to read their thoughts. Until we can all return there, books like this will have to do. ( )

A light, quick, transporting collection of memoirs into Paris from some of the best female authors of this generation. I recommend for travel buffs, francophiles, and those that look to escape the world around them. ( )

Mostly honest, unromanticized accounts of travel to a foreign land without the requisite language skills. Does and doesn't make you want to go. In other words, an elaboration on the usual mixed reviews of Parisian tourism. ( )

Thanks to Goodreads and Putnam for this book.

I have to admit I'm not an anthology reader but this book appeared to me since I've never been to Paris. This book took me there and may not even travel there in the future.

I've read some of these authors and I liked their writing before and like their perspective of Paris and all the touristy spots and some off the beaten track. Some stories are more interesting to me than others and that's just my personal opinion. A few of them are: Michelle Gable, Eleanor Brown, Jennifer L. Scott, Lauren Willig and Meg Waite Clayton. ( )

I must start this review by telling you that I travel a lot and Paris is absolutely my favorite city to visit. If I was a little younger and a lot braver, I would probably live there but I think its a little late in life for me to make such a change. I love reading books about Paris when I can't be there and this book didn't disappoint me - in fact, I loved it. I have read books by all 18 of the authors who contributed and since they all write different types of books, the essays all took different slants on their love or lack of love for Paris. As with any anthology, I loved some of the essays and wasn't too crazy about others. Whether you've visited Paris or want to visit or just enjoy reading about that beautiful city, this is a great book to read. ( )
