Paris . . . right now

Paris is a city of clichés, which is why it is so refreshing to find a guide book that avoids them and instead takes readers to insider addresses, hip new eating venues and trailblazing producers of food, wine, pastries, coffee, beer, fashion and design.

Journalist Lindsey Tramuta has lived in the city for a decade, writing about French life and culture for a variety of publications, as well as her blog, Lost in Cheeseland, so she is well equipped to present the modern face of the city.

In The New Paris: The People, Places & Ideas Fueling a Movement (published by Abrams on April 18th, £18.99), she teams up with photographer Charissa Fay to put a spotlight on what’s hot in Paris right now, and celebrates the city’s diversity and creativity.
