3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe half this "memoir" is true?, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paris in my Springtime (Kindle Edition)
Coleman's book, which claims to be true could be subtitled A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man in Paris, It is a montage of outrageous stories which seem to be gleaned from a lifetime visiting Paris, with probably many borrowed from friends.and a few just made up
Coleman reckons he used his diaries as an aide-memoire - but his attempts to make us believe what he writes is true are (intentionally?) sloppy. One quick example - a character in 1963 Paris rails against McDonald's invading - although there was briefly a Macdonald's in Creteil in 1972, it failed spectacularly and McDonald’s official entrance into France was 1979, in Strasbourg.
Nevertheless an entertaining enough read to while away time on a journey or in a waiting room

This review is from: Paris in my Springtime (Kindle Edition)
This record of Paris in the sixties gave a pretty readable vision of the author's early character and a year in his life there. The characterisation is good and whilst the plot is pretty linear it is, nonetheless, a pretty good read. I enjoyed it.
