Je-t-aime-me-neither

 

Is Paris really the eternal City of Love? Dumped suddenly by her Parisian boyfriend, sultry expat Lily is left wondering if je t’aime still exists. Instead of crying into her glass of wine, she decides to heal her bruised ego and quash her romantic doubts with a carefree summer fling . . . or as the French call it: une aventure. Little does she know what—or whom—this adventure has in store! A fun and tantalizing true story of what the Passions of Paris can ignite. Click here to order! http://amzn.to/1Htubo7.

 

 

 

 

90-plus-ways

 

90+ Ways You Know You’re Becoming French is a just-for-fun little book full of perspicacious cultural observations. An amusing way to measure acquired “Frenchness” for those who have studied French or lived in France. Such as when you:

• say things like “I’m getting down from the bus at the next stop”
• know where the “first floor” really is
• ask everyone about their recent/upcoming vacances.

We had a lot of fun making this book. It’s a great gift (less expensive than flowers!) and gets a party rolling. Attractive watercolor illustrations.

Walks through Lost Paris

 

This book features four walks through Paris with hundreds of photos, before and after, showing a Paris that no longer exists. Walk from Saint-Germain des Pres to the Grands Boulevards, through the Left Bank, Ile de la Cité, and the Marais to see how Paris transformed in the 19th century and into the early 20th century under the pickaxe of Baron Haussmann and his followers. The text tells us the history of these grand projects.

Best Paris Short Stories

 

For some, Paris is home, for others, merely a dream. For Gaston, it is a bench, the anchor of his life. For Sue, a romantic city filled with scandalous, dark-eyed men, for Frank an all-consuming fire, for Mme Santinelli a ghost she’d hoped to forget.

By turns humorous, bittersweet or surreal, each of these carefully selected* stories explores a different facet of Paris.

*Selected by distinguished judges Elizabeth Bard, Cara Black, Janet Skeslien Charles, Charles and Clydette De Groot, Penelope Fletcher, Nicola Keegan, Anne Korkeakivi, Diane Johnson, Robert Stewart, Heather Stimmler-Hall and Charles Trueheart.

Confessions of a Paris Party Girl

 

Wine, romance, and French bureaucracy—the ups and downs of an American’s life in Paris. This laugh-out-loud memoir is almost too funny to be true!

When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to indulge in wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love. In her first book, this cheeky storyteller and semi-professional drinker recounts the highs and lows of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true, you’ll feel as if you’re stumbling along the cobblestones with her.

Author David Burke Reviews Dining Out in Paris

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

Dining Out in Paris

As a longtime resident in Paris, I can highly recommend Dining Out in Paris, especially for people coming for long stays. What I particularly admire is the crystal clear introduction to the different kinds of eating places one finds here, which are confusing at first as, for example, what’s the difference between what one can expect a at restaurant versus a bistro versus a brasserie versus a café in terms of the look and the service and the types of food they serve, and salons de thé and bars à vin, what you can get there besides tea and wine, with some items overlapping, but some quite different. The book also explains the terms for the order of the meal, the entrée, the plat principal, and the dessert, and beyond the eateries, it gives you an excellent run-down on all kinds of shops for things to eat and drink, from fromage to vin to glace and sorbet and chocolates – the works! This is just what the subtitle says, “What you need before you get to the City of Light.”

I’ve only had time to get to one of the eating places, the vegetarian Café Ginger, in my Bastille neighborhood. Everything was delicious and surprising, and the description in the book was right on.

Another thing I like about this book is that it has none of the usual culinary suspects, and the restaurants they recommend are located in colorful parts of Paris, mostly away from the tourist areas, and are not all are French. Half of the eateries they recommend are savory-sounding places from other parts it the world. Instead of running down a quick list, this book recommends and critiques only twelve restaurants, studying them with deep care and evident pleasure and writing about them in them with rich, enticing descriptions. I commend their approach. They love good food and know how to explain it, and with plenty of happy surprises all the way.

Bravo!
