At the same time, there was also the matter of raising a child and carrying on with day-to-day, not-so-fabled life. As Gopnik describes, the dual processes of navigating a foreign city and becoming a parent are not completely dissimilar journeys: both hold new routines, new languages, a new set of rules by which everyday life is lived.
Experience this weaving of the magical with the mundane in a wholly delightful, often hilarious look at what it was to be an American family man in Paris at the end of the 20th century.
"Gopnik is an artful reporter, dapper in his prose, sharp in his sense of absurdity." (The Seattle Times)

Wish this wasn't abridged!!
It's an amazing collection of essays, and so much fun to hear them read by the author, but the fact that it is abridged is a true buzzkill. I have the book, so I was able to read the whole thing, but would have been much happier to have been able to "read" it in complete form from audible.
