Paris Was Ours

Finished March 12
Paris Was Ours: thirty-two writers reflect on the city of light, edited by Penelope Rowlands
I saw this new book at the library and had to check it out. Paris is one of those magical cities that holds a certain mystique. I have only been to Paris once, in my youth, but my memories of it are still strong.
The writers here all lived or live now in Paris. They talk about their memories of the city, their feelings about the city, and how it compares to their lives elsewhere.
A wonderful collection, that awoke my own memories.
