Praise

“To discover lesser-known quarters of the City of Light, consult Quiet Corners of Paris… This illustrated handbook takes you to often-overlooked parts of the city: its hidden villas, winding lanes, cobblestone courtyards and Renaissance fountains.” –Frank Wagner, Copley News Service

"Yes, noisy, bustling Paris has its quiet corners, and this attractive book describes them in loving detail. Most of the places mentioned here are out of doors and open to the public. The places range from museum courtyards and royal gardens to 15th Century cloisters and tiny passageways to the back streets and lanes of the various neighborhoods. Some famous sites are here (Luxembourg Gardens) but so are unknown treasures such as the Irish Cultural Center, housed in a townhouse used by the Irish Catholic collegiate community since 1775, or Paris’ lesser-known islands. And few places are as quiet as the city’s evocative cemeteries." –The Chicago Tribune

"Many tour books promise to deliver “secrets” and never do. This one does. Many times…More than 80 suggestions. All very high on my list of “musts” the next time I find myself in Paris with a good book, a fresh cigar, a few hours to kill–and no desire to be anywhere near the Mona Lisa." -Headbutler

"This small new York publisher is producing some of the most innovative, beautiful and rewarding guidebooks on the market." –Minneapolis Star Tribune

"The Little Bookroom…wants travelers to slow down. They’ve carved themselves a niche in the over-crowded travel book industry by thinking small with titles that define the character of a city." –The Pittsburgh Tribune

"For pocket-sized, covetable books, turn to The Little Bookroom." –Vogue [UK]
