I enjoy Gopnik's writing in The New Yorker and appreciate his views and observations. Unfortunately, it turns out that I don't really care all that much about quiet, thoughtful essays on life in Paris. Many people do. I don't. This is something I learned.

Lynn Dee Glad you posted about this book even though it was something you didn't care for. I think I will enjoy it.

Fred Maybe you will. He's a good writer. It was just the subject that failed to interest me. I could have stuck it out and finished the book, and I think I would have found some parts I liked, but I felt disinclined to persist when I noticed my interest waning. But I'm about to start his newer book, Angels and Ages, which is more to my taste, being "A Short Book about Lincoln, Darwin, and Modern Life."
