For more than a century, Americans and Britons have been arriving hopefully in Paris. Most were tourists, but a significant number had other motives, ranging from learning to paint or write, to finding a rich husband; from escaping racism and politics to gaining a sexual education. John Baxter arrived because he had fallen in love with a French woman. All of these people arrived because they were re-making their lives.

We'll Always Have Paris is a personal view of Paris as it appeared to the emotionally and intellectually hungry of the world. It is a guided tour of the people and places associated with the Parisian legend. It includes interviews with painters, film-makers, actresses, writers, poets. There are visits to the cafes of Montparnasse where Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Man Ray hung out. It explores the old brothels - temples of sensuality in 18th century Paris - and an erotic bookshop. Above all, it is John Baxter's personal history of Europe's most romantic capital city.
