    I was hoping this would be a photographic documentation of those amazing courtyards off the streets that we glimpsed while walking around Paris Instead, there were somepublic publicized areas like the courtyard at the Louvre , so although there were some interesting spaces, it wasn t the book for which I was hoping.

    OK I really read this to see what quiet corners I had already seen or knew about and which ones were new to me It s a cute book showing some delightful and quiet areas of a very busy city, and could be a nice reference for a return visitor to Paris looking to seethan just the big sites.

    I m pretty sure that the author is incredibly fond of benches Perhaps writing this book was simply an homage to park benches.It is a nice little book of lovely parks with benches , alleys, and assorted other places that are definitely off the beaten path If you are unfamiliar with Paris on an intimate level, this would be very difficult to digest.
