Overview

Through the pages of therapist PJ Adams’ memoir Intoxicating Paris: Uncorking the Parisian Within, you’ll take a quirky journey through the byways, kitchens, shops, cafés, closets, and boudoirs of Paris.
Intoxicating Paris guides you through the ancient streets of Paris, where you’ll uncover the secrets of creativity that inspired the likes of Hemingway, Hugo, and Rodin. Along the way, the author invites you into a few of the most sumptuous dining venues in Paris. And you’ll join her in some cooking escapades, as well as solve the mystery of how those French women maintain their slim physiques despite their rich diet of foie gras, bread, and wine—not to mention dessert!
You’ll divine the sources of the French woman’s allure—how she lives her life, conducts her relationships, and rears her children. You’ll probe the French man’s sexual potency. And examine how strict parenting and close ties shape the French extended family system, as well as how La Seduction holds sway in the bedrooms, institutions, and bastions of power in France.
You’ll flâner (wander) through the marchés of Paris, as well as les grands magasins (department stores) where you'll learn some shopping tips and secrets. You’ll even identify ways to put some of that French style into your own closet, no matter your age or budget. Finally, you’ll explore some of the commonalities between the French and American attitudes toward home and country—and learn how any reader can capture a bit of that French joie de vivre, whether you visit Paris or simply invite her into your living rooms as an arm chair traveler.
Through the eyes of a travel-loving psychotherapist, Intoxicating Paris is filled with fascinating encounters, memorable stories, and unconventional insights into the City of Light. This book is for style lovers, foodies, creative hearts, and anyone who simply loves Paris.
