KIRKUS REVIEW

An American approach to Paris as the Chief, Paris Bureau, of the Sunday Edition of the New York Times introduces this city with enthusiasm rather than finesse. The allure of certain quarters; the (French) art of relaxation- fully indulged; open air markets and boites de nuit; clowns and circuses; fashions and their creators; the new vogues- epiphanism and lettrism; the French Assembly, politics and premiers; Communists and Gaullists; and some profiles, based on direct acquaintance, of Sartre, Colette, Matisse, Picasso and Le Corbusier....An informal correlation of information and impression, not for American Express tours but for a widened atmosphere abroad.
