9780060832889: We'll Always Have Paris: Sex and Love in the City of Light

For more than a century, Americans and Britons have been arriving hopefully in Paris. Most were tourists, but a significant number had other motives, ranging from learning to paint or write, to finding a rich husband; from escaping racism and politics to gaining a sexual education. John Baxter arrived because he had fallen in love with a French woman. All of these people arrived because they were re-making their lives.

We'll Always Have Paris is a personal view of Paris as it appeared to the emotionally and intellectually hungry of the world. It is a guided tour of the people and places associated with the Parisian legend. It includes interviews with painters, film-makers, actresses, writers, poets. There are visits to the cafes of Montparnasse where Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Man Ray hung out. It explores the old brothels - temples of sensuality in 18th century Paris - and an erotic bookshop. Above all, it is John Baxter's personal history of Europe's most romantic capital city.

Review:

" 'We'll Always Have Paris is nothing less than an explosive orgy of French cultural and erotic delights'" ( Jeffrey Greene, author of French Spirits)

"

'Towers above most recent memoirs of life abroad ... considerably more irresistible than many of the performers at Bernadin's Crazy Horse Show'

" ( Sunday Times)

"

'A charming insider's guide to literary and artistic Paris ... richly discursive, beautifully held together...if you can't hop on the Eurostar, this little volume and a glass of red make an excellent substitute'

" ( John Harding, Daily Mail)

Book Description:

From the book-collecting author of A Pound of Paper, a personal anecdotal guide to Paris illuminating its recent erotic Bohemian past.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 173 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For more than a century, pilgrims from all over the world seeking romance and passion have made their way to the City of Light. The seductive lure of Paris has long been irresistible to lovers, artists, epicureans, and connoisseurs of the good life. Globe-trotting film critic and writer John Baxter heard her siren song and was bewitched. Now he offers readers a witty, audacious, scandalous behind-the-scenes excursion into the colorful all-night show that is Paris -- interweaving his own experience of falling in love, with a delightfully salacious tour of the sultry Parisian corners most guidebooks ignore: from the literary cafes of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and de Beauvoir to the brothels where Dietrich and Duke Ellington held court, where Salvador Dali sated his fantasies, and Edward VII kept a sumptuous champagne bath for his favorite girls.
