Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the acclaimed bestseller and 1997 National Book Award finalist, Le Divorce, comes a sparkling comedy of manners once again set in the world of Americans in Paris.

Anne-Sophie is a young Frenchwoman engaged to Tim Nolinger, an American journalist hot on the trail of a breaking story: The theft of a valuable illuminated manuscript from a private collection in New York, which may now be in the possession of a reclusive film director living on the outskirts of Paris. As Tim, Anne-Sophie, a pair of American antique dealers, and one amorous member of the local gentry converge on the director's chateau, the director's wife--a former actress--is accused of desecrating a national monument. Add to that a disappearing American; a hunting contretemps; a wrongful arrest; and murder, and you have this sexy, stylish, delight of a novel that celebrates the paradoxes of marriage and morality as they are perceived on both sides of the Atlantic. Filled with the author's pithy insights and hilarious asides, Le Mariage is Diane Johnson at her very best.

Synopsis:

In her sparkling, comedy of manners--now in paperback--the bestselling author of "Le Divorce" puts a contemporary twist on this venerable form with her keen-eye portraits of modern-day Americans living in Paris. "Johnson whips love and marriage into a frothy souffle . . . delicious".--"Entertainment Weekly".

Diane Johnson really drags this story out. I found myself wanting to get to the end just to see how she tied it all together. I did enjoy the continuity and references of characters from her other books and I always enjoy a good story about France.
