Many travelers to Paris have wondered, “What would it be like to live here?” An American Family in Paris describes the daily life and adventures of a family living in the Seventh Arrondissement, the heart of Paris, from 1983 to 1985. Focusing specifically on the life of children in Paris—childhood education, school lunches, riding, piano and ballet lessons, birthday parties, nursery schools, hospital emergency rooms, even childbirth in a French clinic—Sally Fallon Morell provides an insightful and amusing look at French habits and culture.
Other topics include driving in Paris, the perils of grocery shopping, the delightful but challenging French elevators, French art and architecture, making friends in France, French apartments, vacationing in France, and the subtleties of speaking French.
A personal memoir of a best-selling cookbook author, Sally Fallon Morell reveals a formative period of her early life which will appeal to her many fans.
