A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The charming true story of a spirited young woman who finds adventure--and the love of her life--in Paris. "This isn't like me. I'm not the sort of girl who crosses continents to mee t up with a man she hardly knows. Paris hadn't even been part of my travel plan..." A delightful, fresh twist on the travel memoir, Almost French takes us on a tour that is fraught with culture clashes but rife with deadpan humor. Sar ah Turnbull's stint in Paris was only supposed to last a week. Chance had b rought Sarah and Frédéric 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 Sydney journalist does h er best to fit in, although her conversation, her laugh, and even her wardr obe advertise her foreigner status. But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from life in a bustling quatier and surviving P arisian dinner parties to covering the haute couture fashion shows and disc overing the hard way the paradoxes of France today, little by little Sarah falls under its spell: maddening, mysterious, and charged with that French specialty-séduction. An entertaining tale of being a fish out of water, Almost French is an enthralling read as Sarah Turnbull leads us on a magical tour of this seductive place-and culture-that has captured her heart.
