This is an auction for WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS: SEX AND LOVE IN THE CITY OF LIGHT by John Baxter.

“Baxter is an Australian in love with a French woman. After moving into her Parisian apartment he becomes her baby's father, her husband and eventually, in his own way, French. He loosely arranges his narrative in themed chapters, lobbing little-known facts, references to favourite films, and gossip about the inglorious past of certain addresses into stories about the affairs of the heart of famous Parisians and expats. Some chapters are bawdy and some hilarious, such as "Invaders," about uncouth, ingrate houseguests. Anyone who appreciates Paris and its myths, likes the meandering storytelling of good conversation and enjoys the mildly salacious will relish reading this book, curled up with a glass of full-bodied red and a box of chocolates.”
- Publishers Weekly (US)

“Baxter moves from Los Angeles to Paris to start a new marriage to a French television newscaster. Searching for a place to live, they find an apartment steps from Notre Dame. A film critic, Baxter intelligently connects Paris venues to various films, French and American, familiar and obscure. Baxter loves to focus on Paris' erotic history, and he does a particularly stunning job of explicating Josephine Baker's electric effect on the French psyche, attributing to her nude dances a profound restructuring of French attitudes to sexuality. Foodies will revel in Baxter's portrayals of Parisian restaurants' obsession with offal. Baxter also provides lively - Booklist (US)
perspectives on Andre Malraux and on the city's ancient marketplace, Les Halles.”
