Oct 13th 2010 1:48PM If you want to really know Paris’ soul, to learn its: rhythms, people, moods, history, sensations, you will be well rewarded by reading David’s divine description of la rentrée which offers you an inside portrait to Parisian life, treasures, rituals and surprises. His beautiful prose not only informs but shows you why fall in Paris is the real Paris of well-rested bottles, culinary bounties and French life uncorked. Another must-read Parisian chapter that pairs so well with his Paris: Paris: Journey into the City of Light book and his thriller Paris City of Night.
Paris, Paris: Journey into the City of Light, which Jan Morris called "Perhaps the most evocative American book about Paris since A Moveable Feast," will be reissued in 2011 by Broadway Books. His latest books are Paris City of Night, a classic thriller set in Paris, and the forthcoming Quiet Corners of Rome (spring 2011). His website is www.davidddownie.com.
