Exhilarating and enchanting . . . brims with a casual wisdom about life. "Chicago Tribune"
In 2009, "New York Times "bestselling author Eloisa James took a leap that many people dream about: She sold her house, took a sabbatical from her job as a Shakespeare professor, and moved her family to Paris. This memoir chronicles her joyful year in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen s sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another. She copes with her Italian husband s notions of quality time; her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools not to mention puberty in a foreign language; and her mother-in-law s raised eyebrow in the kitchen (even as she overfeeds Milo, the family dog). "Paris in Love" invites the reader into the life of a most enchanting family, framed by "la ville de l amour."
In this delightful charm-bracelet of a memoir, Eloisa James shares] her adventures as an American suddenly immersed in all things French food, clothes, joie de vivre. "People"
Enchanting . . . gives the reader a sense of being immersed along with James in Paris for a year . . . you see the rain, taste the food, observe the people. "USA Today"
This delectable confection, which includes recipes, is more than a visit to a glorious city: it is also a tour of a family, a marriage, and a love that has no borders. Tres magnifique "Library Journal "(starred review)"
