Paris I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down is first a very long title for a book, but also the story of Rosecrans Baldwin’s 18 month adventure in Paris, France. It’s the story of an idealistic couple searching for a change of life, a new pace, an opportunity to trade New York City hustle and bustle for a the romance of Paris living. Baldwin, though see the realities of his dream.
Baldwin writes about his life while there and all there beautiful, hilarious adventures he ends up in during his time in the magical city. I loved reading about his day to day life, his co-workers, and the odd tedium’s of daily life in a beautiful city. His writing style is fluid, funny, and relaxing as he paints a new picture of Paris than that many of us think of. A clever, quick read.
