Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik. Pinner writes: "Essayist for The New Yorker and its correspondent in Paris from 1995-2000. A collection of essays; profound and hilarious reflections on everything from French cafes, cooking, strikes, fax machines, Christmas trees, plugs, toys, football, hospitals, and much else. The finest book on France in recent years. A wonderful book about a man who moved his wife and young son from New York to Paris on a whim!"
