Write Wisdom's Loren Stephens Launches PARIS NIGHTS: My Year at the Moulin Rouge by Cliff Simon

A memoir of one man's very surreal year working

at Paris' most iconic cabaret club.

The Moulin Rouge, home of Toulouse-Lautrec and Josephine Baker; the iconic nightclub synonymous with Paris' legendary nightlife. Into this legendary Paris landmark comes Cliff Simon, a South African gymnast and competitive swimmer who gets recruited to dance at the Moulin Rouge.

Cliff's meteoric rise from swing dancer to principal; his offstage encounters with street thugs and diamond smugglers; and the long nights that were filled with after-parties and gorgeous women make for explosive and fascinating reading.

Now a successful actor in Hollywood, Cliff Simon with the expert help of Loren Stephens, one of America's leading memoir writers, is telling his story in Paris Nights: My Year at the Moulin Rouge.
