France, a Love Story: Women Write about the French Experience

by

France, a Love Story: Women Write about the French Experience Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

France has long captured the imagination of Americans. For some women, a love of France and all things French started when they were schoolgirls tackling one of the most seductive tongues. For others the attraction came later when, drawn to what many consider the worlds most exalted culture, they made summer trips or even moved there, learning much about this beguiling country along the way.

In this beautiful collection, women explore their firsthand experiences with the people, landscape, flavors, history, art, culture, and character of this enchanted land. Featuring a delightful mix of perspectives—from M.F.K. Fishers first days in Dijon and Janet Flanners account of post-War Paris to the contemporary prose of Amanda Hesser—this book is sure to strike a chord with Francophiles everywhere.
