Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suzy Gershman fulfilled a lifelong dream of hers and her husband's by moving to Paris after his death. This is the story of her first year in Paris, as she tries to begin her new life, immerse herself in French daily life, and become really French. Her story is always funny, occasionally heart breaking, and, of course, scattered throughout with helpful and little-known shopping tips and hints about living in Paris. Suzy Gershman has brought her international expertise to readers, television viewers, travelers, and shoppers the world over with her series of Frommer's Born to Shop books. She has written a travel-shopping column for Travel & Leisure and Travel Holiday and now contributes to National Geographic's Traveler Magazine with regular informational inserts called Shop Wise.

Synopsis:

Bestselling writer Suzy Gershman (dubbed “Super Shopper Suzy” by Oprah) is our answer to Peter Mayle in this heartfelt, breezy, and funny story of starting over in Paris. Suzy had always fantasized about moving to Paris with her husband, but when he dies unexpectedly, she decides to fulfill their dream alone. Here she gives a deliciously conversational chronicle of her first year in Paris and of the dizzying delights and maddening frustrations of learning to be a Parisian. Filled with Gershman’s insider’s tips on everything from cooking the perfect clafoutis to—naturally—shopping, C’est la Vie is delightfully entertaining and captures the exhilarating experience of beginning a new adventure.

A fun lighthearted look at living in Paris. Suzy Gershman has a quick wit and it's a fun look at what it means to be an American living abroad.
