Downie wound up living in the chic Marais district, married to the Paris-born American photographer Alison Harris, an equally incurable walker and chronicler. Ten books and a quarter-century later, he still spends several hours every day rambling through Paris and writing about the city he loves. An irreverent, witty romp featuring thirty-one short prose sketches of people, places, and daily life, Paris, Paris: Journey into the City of Light ranges from the glamorous to the least-known corners and characters of the world's favorite city.

Great preparation for a trip to Paris
Where does Paris, Paris rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is among the best.
What other book might you compare Paris, Paris to and why?
A combination of personal memoir by someone who has lived in and loved Paris for years and well-researched information about the city, It is much more satisfying and interesting than a conventional guidebook. I will listen to it again before my next trip, as I didn't have time to get to most of the very interesting places he talked about.
What about Max Winter’s performance did you like?
It was natural and easy to listen to.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
