Reviews

"Paris may be universally known as the City of Light, but based on this exquisite book it could just as easily be called the City of Parks." --Chicago Tribune "No matter how many times you have been to Paris, never go again without Susan Cahill (are you listening, Woody?) In our many visits there since 1957 my wife Judith and I thought we had covered all the known and not-so-known delights of the city. Only in reading The Hidden Gardens of Paris did we realize we had missed much of what had been hiding in plain sight. In her earlier book The Smiles of Rome she had worked the same magic, enabling us to return to the Imperial City in the company of notable writers whose experience in their time enraptures the visitor today. We have already started packing for Paris." --Bill Moyers "Whether you go often to Paris or are making your first visit, this is the guide you need. Susan Cahill will accompany you through the parks of this beloved city--from famous public spaces to secret gardens: a walk through the history and lore of Paris and Parisians, all in the open air." --Shirley Abbott, author of The Bookmaker's Daughter, Love's Apprentice, and The Future of Love "The secluded places that Susan Cahill and Marion Ranoux show us may have seemed off limits to the considerate traveller, anxious to avoid an invasion of French privacy. But this lively and informative guide gives one the confidence and the an overwhelming desire to venture into the Jardin Catherine Labour and the Jardin du Mus e Rodin, or, on the other hand, to tackle the Bois du Boulogne on the next visit to Paris." --Elizabeth Cullinan, author of House of Gold "As someone who likes to build a walk into her daily routine, this handy, informative little book helped me visit old neighborhood park and garden friends and meet new ones. And what's not to like about the gardens of Paris and the stories behind them?" --Mireille Guiliano, author of French Women Don't Get Fat
