France has long captured the imagination of Americans. For some women, a love of France and all things French started when they were schoolgirls tackling one of the most seductive tongues. For others the attraction came later when, drawn to what many consider the world’s most exalted culture, they made summer trips or even moved there, learning much about this beguiling country along the way.
In this beautiful collection, women explore their firsthand experiences with the people, landscape, flavors, history, art, culture, and character of this enchanted land. Featuring a delightful mix of perspectives—from M.F.K. Fisher’s first days in Dijon and Janet Flanner’s account of post-War Paris to the contemporary prose of Amanda Hesser—this book is sure to strike a chord with Francophiles everywhere.
