Fraught with culture clashes but rife with deadpan humor, "Almost French" is an enthralling read as Turnbull leads readers on a magical tour of Paris, the seductive place--and culture--that has captured her heart.
From the Publisher:
Sarah Turnbull's stint in Paris was only supposed to last a week. Chance had brought Sarah and Frederic together in Bucharest, and on impulse she decided to take him up on his offer to visit him in the world's most romantic city. Sacrificing Vegemite for vichyssoise, the feisty journalist does her best to fit in, although her conversation, her laugh, and even her wardrobe advertise her foreigner status.|As she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from life in a bustling quartier and surviving Parisian dinner parties to covering the haute couture fashion shows and discovering the hard way the paradoxes of French culture, little by little Sarah falls under its spell, maddening, mysterious, and charged with that French specialty - seduction.
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.
