Absolutely one of my favourite memoirs about Paris!
Stuck in a copy-editing job and stagnant routine that holds little adventure, Janice finds an industrious way to buy herself two years of freedom in Europe. A few days into her stop in Paris on Rue Mouffetard, she spies a handsome butcher — yes, a butcher — who looks like Daniel Craig but doesn’t speak English. And Janice does not speak French!
Janice is incredibly creative and industrious in how she turns her three loves — words, art, and Christophe, into a story of re-invention and a way to make her happily-ever-after in Paris last forever.
