Almost French

by Sarah Turnbull

Almost French

This travel memoir and love story set in Paris was written by Australian writer Sarah Turnbull.

One night in Bucharest, a chance meeting with a charming Frenchman changes journalist her travel plans forever. Acting on impulse, she agrees to visit Frederic for a week in Paris. Put a very French Frenchman together with a strong-willed Australian woman and the result is some spectacular and often hilarious cultural clashes. Sarah's clothes, her laugh, her conversation – even how much she drinks – set her apart.

Language is a minefield of misunderstanding and the simple act of buying a baguette at the local boulangerie is fraught with social danger. But as she navigates the highs and lows of this strange new world, from life in a bustling inner city quartier and surviving Parisian dinner parties to covering the haute couture fashion shows and discovering the hard way the paradoxes of France today, little by little Sarah falls under Paris' spell.

This book is funny and perceptive, telling the story of an adventurous Australian who finds herself becoming almost French.
