Paris, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $26.00) is Rosencrans Baldwin’s memoir of his 18 months in Paris as a writer for a global advertising copy. His idealized notions of the City of Light run up against reality as Baldwin comes to realize that Paris is not all croissants and cathedrals. “. . . great fun and surprisingly touching,” says Kirkus in its starred review. Baldwin’s debut novel, You Lost Me There, was named of NPR’s Best Books of 2010 and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice.
