Native Parisians guide you through the life and soul of the City of Light.
For many tourists, Paris is the Eiffel Tower, the Sacre-Coeur, the Arc de Triomphe, the obelisk in the Place de la Concorde, and other famous sites. But what is the true essence of the city--the one that Parisians experience every day? Through Alessandra Mattanza's stunning array of photographs, and interviews with such renowned figures as chef Joel Robuchon, designer Elie Saab, actress Isabelle Huppert, film directors Jean-Jacques Annaud and Claude Lelouch, and others, My Paris offers a very personal vision of the city from those who know and love it best.
Alessandra Mattanza, a writer, screenwriter, and fine-art photographer, was born in Italy but has lived abroad for more than 20 years. Her infinite passion for the cinema has led her to specialize in interviews with actors and directors, as well as in traveling and fiction. She currently works as a foreign correspondent, contributor, and editor for a number of publishers. For White Star Publishers she published Wonders of New York, Australia, The New Frontier, and My New York.
