Phil Cousineau, author of The Art of Pilgrimage and The Book of Roads, has this to say about the anthology:“Wandering in Paris is not only one of my favorite things to do in the world, it is also the title of this marvelous new collection of stories and poems. As you read through them, don’t be surprised if you hear the voice of Edith Piaf herself as she sings, “C’est marveilleux.’ ‘It’s marvelous.’ So is this transportive book.”
