When You Need a Knife Sharpener in Paris …

There is a book that will help!

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for that seasoned Parisian traveler, think outside the box and surprise them with Ma Vie à Paris by Astier de Villatte, an atypical guidebook in the guise of a novel so as not to betray the owner as a tourist. Within its pages you’ll find the favorite spots of the ceramic company’s founders, including restaurants and cafés but also attorneys, acupuncturists, and knife sharpeners. John Baxter’s The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is a memoir-cum-literary guide to the French capital through the eyes of a writer and former tour guide, and is one of the more creative works about Paris in recent years.
