Frances Gendlin''s witty and convincing fictionalized memoir, Paris, Moi, and the Gang: A Memoir...of Sorts is more than a romp through the streets of the most beautiful city in the world. It is a paean to the rich and fascinating history that sets Paris apart. As an American travel writer and expatriate, Fran is researching la Ville-Lumi re (City of Light) while writing a new guide: paying attention to detail and her entire daily life―filled with her "gang" of friends, a family she tries to keep close despite being so far away, and the possibility of romance hovering about. Calling on her knowledge of Franco-American history and weaving this richness into descriptions of the byways the locals trod in this complex and compelling city, Fran draws us into a story that offers the past and the present, and a way of experiencing Paris that most tourists might never see on their own.
