From Booklist:

Oh, to have the opportunity of doing just as the title says! This captivating book is even better to look at in the company of another person with Parisian sympathies, so remembrances can be compared as contents are browsed. With the aid of stunning photography by Christian Sarramon and Nicolas Bruant, text author Alvarez virtually makes love to Paris--its history, its charms--within these luscious pages, first presenting a tour of the districts of the City of Lights, then offering specific focus on different aspects of the appearance and joie de vivre of Paris, including parks and gardens, building interiors, and rendezvous places. A practical guide for travelers is appended, providing information on hotels, restaurants, etc. Brad Hooper
