French Toast: An American in Paris Celebrates the Maddening Mysteries of the French : This engaging memoir of an American woman braving the infamously chilly city of Paris gives a glimpse into the true nature of the French. Peter Mayle may have spent a year in Provence, but Harriet Welty Rochefort writes from the experience of living in Paris for more than twenty years. From a small town in Iowa, Harriet did what so many dream of - she picked up her entire life and moved to the City of Lights - permanently. In French Toast, Harriet makes sense of Parisians and their ever-so-French thoughts on food, money, sex, love, marriage, manners, and much, much more.
