Paris Nights is a memoir of how the author, Cliff Simon, managed his life in the Paris theater after having lived in South Africa for a substantial time. Fresh in his mind, Simon recounts his rendezvous with the romantic city and how he would rise to be somebody once again, thanks in part to his performances at the Moulin Rouge in Paris. Are there second thoughts that might propel him right back to South Africa?
One can tell that the author is a well-traveled individual who has been around the block more than once. Subtle insights form many layers which challenge the reader to put it all together; therefore, what the author is trying to express is rather understated and requires his readers to carefully examine the tidbits of insight garnered from this adventure.
He holds a loving regard for both Africa and Paris, expounding on the various riches of both lands. This view adds the kind of punch and freshness to a story that motivates the reader to turn pages. The clock is certainly ticking for Monsieur Simon. Perhaps his adventure will be rekindled in a subsequent episode of his life’s journeys. Either way, I think the Paris lights and what they bestowed upon the author will mesmerize the reader. I can’t help but to feel delighted every time I discover a little French truncate along the way. Here is a guy who found love in recalling that part of French culture that sticks to your guts.
With more than a feather in his cap, Cliff Simon will rise again and again as he recants the dreams that made his dream come true. Maybe more stories like this could enhance the world more effectively than stories of guns chasing guns or greater-than-life explosions. Let’s have a grand round of applause for Cliff Simon.
