As The Los Angeles Times wrote, New Mysteries of Paris is "not so much stories as character sketches, artfully drawn, as though told by people very close to their subjects--the narrator of Andre Breton's Nadja, a companion of King Farouk; the painter August Macke describing the young Paul Klee. Gifford is relentless in his imaginative scrutiny of human frailty." The four stories that evolve through each narrator's soul-searching are by turns straightforward, fantastic, bitter and erotic.
