Synopsis

This modern and hedonistic address book for men in Paris is full of tips, illustrations and photographs to entice any man to make the most of his time in the 'city of light'. Short literary texts describe Paris' many small daily pleasures for men such as smoking a cigar on a sidewalk café terrace, getting his shoes shined, enjoying an espresso in the morning, exploring secondhand bookshops, wandering through the city at dusk, attending a matinée screening in the cinema, renting a classic car, playing outdoor tennis, getting a stylish new haircut, having breakfast in a luxury hotel and buying a fitted suit, as well as slightly more risqué activities such as casting furtive glances at women's bra straps in restaurants. The book also includes interviews with some famous Parisian men including François Simon, Frédéric Beigbeder, Fabrice Lucchini and Edouard Baer, as well as a guide to choosing wine and whiskey, tips on how to pick out a sophisticated aftershave and information on the best cocktail bars, night clubs, cafés and secret hideaways in the city.
