BRYCE CORBETT is an Australian journalist who has been living and working in Paris for more than six years. He arrived there after a two-year stint in London, where he worked as a print journalist at THE TIMES and as a television producer at SKY NEWS. He has written for THE AUSTRALIAN, THE AGE, THE SUN HERALD, VOGUE and AUSTRALIAN GOURMET TRAVELLER to name a few. Before leaving Australia he worked for six years at the DAILY TELEGRAPH, most notably as its Page 13 gossip columnist. He still lives in Paris with his wife, Shay (the gorgeous Lido dancer he writes about in the book), and their new baby, Flynn Xavier Corbett.
'Fast-paced and amusing, told with rollicking good humour ... Corbett writes wittily and accurately about Paris, not glossing over the rough patches and the mysteries.' - Sun Herald, Australia
