Christmas in Paris 2002

'“Fried’s fine second novel (after 2004s My Father’s Fighter) follows a curmudgeonly 49-year-old New Yorker and his wife through the rituals of their annual vacation in Paris. But with wry humor (Steiner describes as “exhilarating” a rainy weekend spent reading Balzac) and character-based insight (“the unlived life is a peculiarly American phenomenon”), Fried keeps the pages turning until, gratifyingly, Steiner comes to see that his fate is “being decided by history in ways he [is] only beginning to understand.” The novel finds its center in the confluence of its political moment and Steiner’s place in it, tracing the erosion of known worlds.” —Publishers Weekly'
