I'm thrilled and just going to repeat Brian's review because it's so on target:
" These stories have something of an acquired taste quality to them. They require some effort, but are worth it. They were all written while the writer, a French-Canadian, was living in Paris as a correspondent for The New Yorker. They take place in various cities in Europe and the common theme is the alienation of people who, in one way or another, have been uprooted."

If you love anything about Paris at all - and want really good writing to consume your brain for a bit - read Mavis Gallant!
