Some advice for 22 year old art students writing about their six week trip to Paris: If you are on a six week trip to Paris, YOU ARE NOT POOR, even if you feel poor because you don't own a Vespa. Also, if someone is reading your book about your six week trip to Paris, they are probably already familiar with Anais Nin and do not need a patronizing little footnote explaining who she was. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride because I was simultaneously charmed by the drawings and irritated by the whining and completely fatuous literary references.
