Synopses & Reviews
An engaging exploration of the style that permeates all things French--perfect for anyone looking to achieve that classic French flair
The French truly are singular in the way they live, act, and think--from the lightness of their pastries to the decedance of their Hermes scarves. They simply exude a certain je ne sais quoi that is a veritable art form.
In Joie de Vivre, Harriet Welty Rochefort, an American who married a Frenchman and has lived in Paris for more than thirty years, explores the secrets of the French--from romance and style to acting and flirting like a Parisienne to wining and dining a la francaise.
With tips and tricks like how to diet like a Frenchwoman (savor just one perfectly crafted indulgence a day) and project confidence like a true Parisienne (always start your look with lovely lingerie), Rochefort's signature warm, witty, and entertaining voice will delight Francophiles of all stripes.
