Paris, art, poetry - they go together so well.
This original collection includes a number of poems on Paris, the Seine, the gargoyles of Notre Dame, the shifting moods of the city and the nostalgia it inspires. A quirky homage to garlic ("Saloon") is followed by a number of poems on great art (Picasso, Renoir, Japanese prints). The collection ends with an elegy to the author's mother.
