Moving to Paris

I was surprised to find so many books in the Library's collection about expatriates living in France, and how often the books circulated. Usually the lucky person who moves to France, to shop daily for fresh produce in the Parisian markets, or to fix up a crumbling country house, has married a French citizen or has a lot of extra money. For the rest of us, we have to be satisfied with just reading about their experiences. C'est la vie!

Some recent titles are:

Almost French: Love and a New Life in Paris by Sarah Turnbull
Chasing Matisse: a Year in France Living My Dream by James Morgan
Extremely Pale Rose: a Very French Adventure by Jamie Ivey
French Spirits: a House, a villa, and a Love Affair in Burgundy by Jeffrey Greene
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
We'll Always Have Paris: Sex and Love in the City of Light by John Baxter
Words in a French Life: Lessons in Love and Language from the South of France by Kristin Espinasse
A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle

Please check the catalog for availability or to place a hold.
