Paris and Her Remarkable Women

Village Voice Bookshop

Paris is blessed with several English-language bookshops. Thank god, because if I didn’t have easy access to novels in my own language, I’m pretty sure I’d be nuts by now.

Reading is a pleasure, an escape. If I had to read in French all of the time, it would quickly (hmm, make that instantaneously) become arduous. A chore.

The Village Voice Bookshop is one of these gems. Run by a French woman enthralled by Anglo-American literature, it often hosts readings and events.

I have a guest post about one of these events over on the wonderfully-titled website “No Country for Young Women.”

I learned a lot about “Paris and Her Remarkable Women” (the title of the book). Feel free to check it out!

    Interesting! I’ll look for this book.

    Also recommend ‘True Pleasures’ by Lucinda Holdforth (an Aussie) – subtitle is ‘A Memoir of Women in Paris.’

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
