A Town Like Paris reviewed in the New York Times

What better start to a Sunday morning could a fella possibly hope for?

Over juice and cereal this morning, as I stared out across the Paris rooftops, an email arrived from a colleague informing me he had just read a review of A Town Like Paris in today's edition of the New York Times.

And it's not half-bad.

In a cover story highlighting this year's batch of summer reading, journalist Josh Hammer calls A Town Like Paris "a refreshing variation on a shopworn theme: the Anglophone at large in the French capital".

While noting the literary effort is "not quite A Moveable Feast", Hammer nonetheless notes: "Corbett’s sharp observations lend the tale a dash of √©lan".

I'll wear that.
