My Paris

Lannan Selections
Gail Scott

In My Paris, a Canadian woman keeps an extraordinary journal of her time in a Parisian studio. Not a typical tourist, she prefers indoor spaces, seeing Paris go by on TV or watching from her window the ever-changing displays of men’s designer clothing across the boulevard. Or she roams the streets, caught between nostalgia and a competing sense of the present day, between Paris’s rich cultural traditions and the realities of Western imperialism.

Disillusioned by her inability to reconcile these contradictions and by her own part in perpetuating them, she assembles in her journal pieces of the present, past, of art, philosophy, of herself, and of the world outside her, pulling them together on the page in a very personal act of subversion and creation.
