French cheese

How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are - Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mas

I keep hoping that I'll outgrow this phase of wanting to read about French women, but so far it hasn't happened. Apparently I'm not alone. 


This one doesn't stand out in the crowd of books about how French women dress, smell, age, cook, eat, love, and parent. It consists primarily of lists interspersed with pictures of lovely women and would be a good gift for the college student who can't stop talking about her semester in Paris or the work friend who spends entirely too much money at Anthropologie.
