In this poignant collection, twenty-five contemporary women writers share their firsthand experiences with the people, landscape, flavors, history, art, culture, and particular joie de vivre of this enchanted land. These stories tell not just of a deep love for France, but also of the pain and joy of discovering new dimensions to their very selves. The voices represented in France, a Love Story are varied, witty, and inimitable. They include, among others, M.F.K Fisher’s colorful description of her first days in Dijon, Ayun Halliday’s irreverent account of her visit to a Parisian fashion show, and Alice Kaplan’s funny and sexy story of a summer fling with a young Frenchman. In her own unique way, each contributor seeks to express what anyone who has been there knows: that there is something about France that always stays with you.
