"An engaging story of a sometimes rocky but ultimately affectionate relationship with another culture."
From the Publisher
Annotation An Australian journalist meets a French lawyer, marries him, and moves to Paris. In this memoir about the experience, Sarah Turnbull is candid about her difficulties fitting into French culture, and accepting its enormous differences from what she is used to. Her efforts to build a career there, to find friends, to accept her husband's family's customs, and--finally--to feel just a little bit French provide an unusual perspective on being a stranger in a strange land.
Editors Note A Sydney journalist recounts her unexpected move to Paris, during which she fell in love and came to cherish the city's charm, fashion, food, paradoxes, and dinner parties.
