Praise for "The Piano Shop on the Left Bank"
Carhart s] writing is fluid and lovely enough to lure the rustiest plunker back to the piano bench and the most jaded traveler back to Paris.
"San Francisco Chronicle "
Captivating . . . Carhart] joins the tiny company of foreigners who have written of the French as verbs. . . . What he tries to capture is not the sight of them, but what they see.
"The New York Times"
Thoroughly engaging . . . In part it is a book about that most unpredictable and pleasurable of human experiences, serendipity. . . . The book is also about something more difficult to pin down, friendship and community.
"The Washington Post"
Carhart writes with a sensuousness enhanced by patience and grounded by the humble acquisition of new insight into music, his childhood, and his relationship to the city of Paris.
"The New Yorker"
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD.
