Product Overview

SAY CHIC..."C''est magnifique!"

Ever wonder why some French words have become so common in English as to be "cliches"? Or why your witty "repartee" wouldn''t be quite so witty without them?

In "Say Chic," Francoise Blanchard and Jeremy Leven collect more than seventy familiar French words and phrases that have become a permanent part of the American vocabulary. In their clever, often amusing style, the authors explain the origin of each word, its meaning, and how it came to be adopted into English. Uniting the sensibilities of an American author and a French author, these surprisingly entertaining stories combine world history, pop culture, etymology, and pithy observations about Americans and the French, with no small amount of "panache."

Featuring delightful illustrations, "Say Chic" will find its "raison d''etre" on the bookshelf of anyone who has ever longed to be an American in Paris and hankers for a bit more of that irresistible "je ne sais quoi" in America.
