Dear Parler Paris Reader,

It was an awfully big undertaking…all last year, Washington D.C. author (of “The Fearless Shopper: How to Get the Best Deals on the Planet”) Kathy Borrus stayed glued to her keyboard in her mid-term rental furnished Montmartre apartment to tell the story of 1000 Paris buildings of note.

We watched her “slave away” and turn down invitations to have dinner or see a movie. In her few free moments while walking the streets of Paris, she would remark how much she had learned about what most of us only see as the facades of the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century architecture in Paris.

She wrote:

“The publisher has finally delivered my Parisian baby:

Thought I’d share the good news which can be enjoyed while munching ‘Freedom Fries.’”

Kathy was a participant in the first of the series of Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshops — here in Paris in 2002 (the one you see advertised above in Las Vegas this coming January). She was already a published author then, but the course was a refresher for her and that’s how we got to know her better. Now, she’s got more excuses to be in Paris (her main goal in life!)…she writes: “Have a UNESCO project to work on, and at least it’s in Paris.”

A description of the book follows…

Perhaps the most picturesque of all international cities, Paris is the quintessential walker’s paradise, with architectural delights down every winding street. It is the city of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, of the Louvre and Montmarte. But, within its 20 concentric arrondissements are many surprises too, from glass office towers to jewel-box mansions to massive public buildings. The monuments, private houses, museums, hotels, and myriad other structures that make up the widely various neighborhoods of Paris have been captured here as never before, by photographers Jorg Brockmann and James Driscoll.

Each of the 1,000 photographs is accompanied by detailed and informative text recounting the history, significance, and the current state of each building. There are also neighborhood maps and fascinating sidebars and appendices, all adding up to an unprecedented view of a uniquely beautiful city that has captivated the imagination of world travelers for centuries.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my copy . To get yours, click on /parlerparis/books/booksaboutfrance.html and scroll down to find it among the other great books on Paris by American authors we know and love.

A la prochaine…

P.S. Kathy Borrus is a travel-writing success story. There are many others like her, through hard work and perseverance, and of course talent, who have fulfilled their dreams to be traveling, living and working where they want, while writing about it all. The Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop is one way to get the jumpstart. If you can’t make the workshop in Las Vegas, we’re sure to have another one here in Paris next Spring and everyone there is invited to my apartment for dinner! (To make your “reservation,” write me)
