books in and about PARIS

I'm a total sucker for Paris.
 
I'd spent about ten seconds in Paris before I decided I could exist there quite happily for the remainder of my life, and ten years later I still can recover nothing but positive thoughts feeling and memories of the place.
 
When inconvenient in daily life to make the journey to the best city in the universe, the book book book versions look more and more appealing.
 
So, if you, like me, are in a Paris sort of mood these stories may seem downright therapeutic.
 
 

Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes

by Elizabeth Bard
 
An American girl falls in love at first sight twice over, once with the Parisian man who cooks for her and takes her out to one fantastic French restaurant after another and simultaneously with French cuisine.
 
Amusing living abroad stories coupled with a cute love story and with a selection of recipes that conclude every chapter, this book is an utterly delicious read, especially for anyone who believes lunch in Paris is a very good idea.
 
 
 
  
How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are
 
by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, Sophie Mas
 
 


 
Flirting with French

by William Alexander

A middle aged American man obsessed with France, French food, and the French language makes readers laugh out loud at his adventures in the county of his dreams.
 
His dream biking trip leaves him lost in the pouring rain after "understanding" a homeless pedestrian's directions. His French immersion class causes him endless perplexing over breasts being masculine, beards being feminine, and turkey being gender free.
 
His tales of learning a second language woe, too, are positively enjoyable.
