Here is Paris -- as it was, and as it may never be again. But Irwin Shaw and Ronald Searle have spent a good part of their lives in Paris, and each has enjoyed an affair with the city. In this lovely book they evoke a romance, daily pleasures and peccadilloes, and, alas, the ending that must come to any affair." -- from the front fold over panel. this is the first USA edition.
