Description
Edmund White's charming, funny, telling series of vignettes of the Paris neighborhood where he and his lover, French architect and illustrator Hubert Sorin, lived. In this ode to Pairs, the everyday becomes extraordinary with White's observations accompanied by Sorin's illustrations. With characters like Father Pierre Riches, the "kind and elegant" catholic priest whose hair had been stroked by Cavafy, to Billy Boy, the jewelry designer with 16,000 Barbies, there is delightful eccentricity to this collaboration. Written during Sorin's decline to AIDS, Our Paris is a poignant look at the couple and the city they loved.From the Hardcover edition.
