Lots of name-dropping - the book resembles articles in Vanity Fair so, if you enjoy that type of journalism, this is the book for you. Included are snippets of the popular and infamous artsy-crowd but the best part is White's description comparing cultural perspectives of the French to the English and, to Americans.

full disclosure: I am a francophile... and have loved Mr. Whites other memoirs. The french ARE different. they are snobby and fussy and these glimpses are like studying stylish primate cousins... this is high-brow gossip- no Kardashians- but some contemporary philosophers and 'priviledged' cads!

Only about 30 percent of Americans have passports, and half of those have traveled only to Mexico or Canada. We are an insular, incurious nation—but there I go again.
