The Most Beautiful Walk in the World recounts John Baxter's life as an ex-pat writer and his adventures as a reluctant tour guide. It's filled with quotes about Paris written by more famous writers, and anecdotes about the city in more interesting times.
It was a fast and fun read and I enjoyed it, but I was a bit offended by the author's cartoonish description of the trio of overweight Texans who took his first tour. Come on, dude, you're Australian. Let's not get uppity.
