"Orphic Paris deserves to become an instant classic..."
"A wise, astute, and luminous literary commonplace book." 


Orphic Paris is a delight to read, thoughtful without being probing, heartfelt without being overly sentimental, an unabashed love letter to all the concrete things that make life in Paris feel more real than elsewhere. "Call me an unrealist," Cole writes, after admiring a video of a unicorn at the Musée de la Chasse, "but maybe I am in fact an ultra-realist." —Times Literary Supplement
