KIRKUS REVIEW

Subduing the encyclopedic, pursuing the pleasurable, this is a travel book on post-war France which ""presumes you are not seeking an intermediate course in architectural planning""- but are looking for points of enjoyment as well as sites of interest. With a general commentary on matters of state such as tipping, coffee, bathrooms, passports, planes and boats, this starts off in Paris with a discussion of places to see, places to stay, where- and what- to eat, entertainment by day and night. Next, from the environs, on to Normandy, Brittany, the chateaux of the Loire, the Pyrenees, Provence, the still well-heeled, white tie Riviera, Corsica, the Alps and Alsace. A contemporary- catching- introduction to this country, this indicates the salients, touches in the more recent impress of the war, and concludes with an abridgement of the Guide Michelin to hotels and restaurants the country over.
