Those who have been chuckling with -- and sometimes at- Art Buchwald as he reports his views of Paris to readers of his column in the Herald-Tribune will welcome the repeat performance and the lagniappe of extra material in this personal introduction to the Paris he knows so intimately. Young man about town- in lighter vein, with none of the unsavory connotations- he takes you with him on expeditions to both Banks, introduces you to the people, places and events that give them significance. His is a personally conducted tour of what to see- with warning signals on what to avoid; on where and how to go, where to eat, and how to behave. He takes a poke, good humoredly, at French and American tourists alike. He gives you a feel of Paris, whether your interest is academic as an armchair traveler, or practical as a prospective tourist. The carefully annotated list of places to dine and dance, and what it will cost you, is worth the price of the book. And you'll get fun reading as you go.
