This is the third book by Buchwald that I have recently read.

The books were the ones identified in his last column in the Washington Post a month or so ago.

Leaving Home reminded me of my "up bringing" though I had it much better that Buckwald in most respects and I was too scared to join the Marines in June 1950 though I now regret that decision!

Buckwald's books are humorous, heartwarming and most enjoyable, even "Too Soon to Say Goodbye" which I sent to my 86 year old sister who has lived alone since her husband died 25 years ago. Recommended reading for those who need a break from novels and non-fiction "stuff".

I read this before my most recent visit to Paris. Nice read. Obviously a bit dated but it does provide some background about Paris and the French that I found informative. Buchwald is a hoot. Loved his column back in the day.

I used to read Art's column and once I heard him speak. He is, to me, an icon of what newspaper people used to be like. The book was a delightful remembrance of an age gone by...with all the celebs he was pals with and all the antics. Surface stuff but fun and lots of humor.

Brought back some wonderful memories of my trip to Paris. Good in sight to the Paris of the forties-fifties-The Paris I wish I'd known.
Humorous anecdotes and situations.
My only complaint is all the name dropping

The combination of biography, wit, and culture makes this book a delightful cultural escape. Thankfully there are still copies of Buchwald's work available at affordable prices.

i had to read this book for class and was dreading it. it's rather old and i was sure i'd hate it but i found myself laughing out loud at the author's humor & stories.

I never read his columns, so I came to this book without prior affections. It is a string of interesting, sometimes humorous anecdotes with quite a cast of characters, but I did not find it great writing that placed me in Paris. Not very descriptive and the author's ego was in the way too much of the time. Interesting, I suppose, if you want to know a lot about Buchwald but not so much about Europe.
Buchwald's humor comes through well enough, but it's often nothing more than anecdotes with very little substance. One-liners and zingers get tiresome after a while. That's not to say the book isn't enjoyable; it is, but I wish Art had bared himself more in this memoir. One wants to know him better, but lamentably isn't allowed to get beyond the veneer.
It's also apparent that he could have expanded some of those anecdotes and made the book more memorable. I'm not saying he should have emulated Hemingway, but he could have put more effort into it. As it is, it left me wanting more, moreso since Art's gone now. I would have loved to discuss this with him.
