How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits
Four fabulous, smart, savvy French women offer up their highly amusing insider take on Parisian life, love, and liberty How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are brilliantly deconstructs the French woman's views on culture, fashion, and attitude. Unlike other books on French style, this one is full of wit and self-deprecating humor. The authors--Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, and Sophie Mas--who are all in their early to late thirties are unmarried though attached, most have children, and are highly accomplished. Bohemian freethinkers and iconoclasts, they are not afraid to cut through some of the myths. They say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed and are all for art, politics, and culture; making everything look easy; and going against the grain. Sports are something to talk about in bars, and maybe, yes, your mother did do a little something subtle to her face after all. In 288 pages, with 100 black-and-white and color pictures--many taken by the authors-- How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are will explain those confusing subjects: clothes, makeup, men, culture, and lifestyle.
