About the Author

John Baxter has lived in Paris for more than twenty years. He is the author of four acclaimed memoirs about his life in France: The Perfect Meal: In Search of the Lost Tastes of France; The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris; Immoveable Feast: A Paris Christmas; and We'll Always Have Paris: Sex and Love in the City of Light. Baxter, who gives literary walking tours through Paris, is also a film critic and biographer whose subjects have included the directors Fellini, Kubrick, Woody Allen, and most recently, Josef von Sternberg. Born in Australia, he lives with his wife and daughter in the Saint-Germain-des-Pres neighborhood, in the same building Sylvia Beach called home.

Reviews

"Strings together the beautiful beads of the French everyday, all held together by the invisible act of imagination that makes a country cohere and endure." -- New York Times Book Review
"This joyful exploration of a much-beloved city will make readers wonder if there is ever really a bad time to visit Paris." -- Publishers Weekly
"Lovers of Paris will get a deeper feeling about their beloved capital from Baxter." -- Booklist
"Sitting down with one of Baxter's books is to stroll the streets of Paris from an armchair, to take a tour of a city that lends itself to the virtual traveler or absent friend of the city. Fun. Highly recommended." -- The Paris Insider
"Baxter alternates the tale of d'Eglantine and the calendar with his experiences of France, and Parisian culture with its deep connection to the seasons. ... Part history, part memoir, part travelog, this book has something for everyone." -- Library Journal
"A delightful book ... about the importance of the seasons of Paris, including the tastes, sights, traditions and subtleties." -- Eye Prefer Paris, "Book of the Month" pick
