Description
Paris, by custom and design, is a pedestrian's city—each block a revelation, every neighborhood rich with history and romance. The biographer of Woody Allen, Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick, and Robert De Niro, as well as the co-director of the Paris Writers' Workshop, John Baxter here recounts his yearlong experience of giving "literary walking tours" through the city, taking unsuspecting tourists in tow on the trail of Paris's legendary artists and writers of the past. He guides us to the favorite cafés of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and James Joyce; Pablo Picasso's underground Montmartre haunts; the bustling boulevards of the late-19th-century flâneurs; the secluded "Little Luxembourg" gardens beloved by Gertrude Stein; the alleys where revolutionaries plotted; and finally Baxter's own favorite walk near his home in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

"Reading The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is the next best thing to a Paris vacation."—Boston Globe

"Fluent, witty, and moving, Baxter's prose invites us to savor and enjoy."—LATimes
