Confessions of a Paris Party Girl
by Vicki Lesage
Release Date: January 12. 2014
Valentine’s Day is the holiday of love, and what’s more romantic than Paris? The City of Lights, strolling along the Seine, toasting with a glass of Bordeaux as the Eiffel Tower twinkles in the background.
But let’s get real for a minute.
While that can happen in Paris, it usually doesn’t. Instead you’re likely to be hit on by gross French guys (most of whom are married) or be stuck waiting in some eternal “line” (if you can even call those meandering queues at the check-out a line) on your way to get where you really want to be.
Life in Paris is a roller coaster of ups and downs, so much so that I was able to fill a whole book about it. Check it out below! Oh, and Joyeuse Saint Valentin!
Wine, romance, and French bureaucracy - the ups and downs of an American's life in Paris. This laugh-out-loud memoir is almost too funny to be true!
Drinking too much bubbly. Meeting sappy Frenchmen who have girlfriends or are creeps or both. Encountering problème after problème with French bureaucracy. When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to taste wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love.
In her first book, this long-time blogger and semi-professional drinker recounts the ups and downs of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true, Vicki makes you feel as if you're stumbling along the cobblestones with her.
Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break?
“Her writing brings the characters she meets to life, her friends, boyfriends, fellow Metro travellers and French officials, and the stories she tells are full of humour, even the truly frustrating ones.”
- Jaqui, French Village Diaries
“Her struggles with French men, love, work and bureaucracy made me laugh out loud, I could not put it down!”
- Sissi de Beauregard, Chick-lit et autres Love Stories
