City of Light
If that dratted strong euro is keeping you away from Paris in the springtime, these upcoming books will feed your fantasies.
Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris (Broadway), by Clotilde Dusoulier, gathers the latest inside dish from a hip young food blogger (www.chocolateandzucchini.com).
Metro Stop Paris: An Underground History of the City of Light (Walker), by Gregor Dallas, is a historian's quirky and fascinating journey through the city's underbelly.
We've Always Had Paris . . . and Provence: A Scrapbook of Our Life in France (Harper), by Patricia Wells and Walter Wells, is a memoir by the cookbook author-restaurant reviewer and her husband, pretty much guaranteed to turn any foodie or Francophile vert with envy.
