A Dream of Paris by Neal Atherton

February 3, 2021

This is the third book I’ve read by Neal Atherton and once again, I loved his refreshing enthusiasm for France and all things French.

This memoir/travelogue is dedicated to Paris and is really a kind of love letter to the author’s favourite city. It is a very personal account and devotes time to the specific places he and his wife love, as well as detailing favourite restaurants, meals and wines.

There is also attention to history, in particular WWII, as well as some extra description of some of special places the couple love to return to. I learned several things I didn’t know about Paris too, which is always a bonus for me and the book made me want to return, which is what I think Neal Atherton hopes readers will do.

Altogether, a charming read from someone who has immersed himself in France and clearly adores the many moods and views of its beautiful capital.
