Reviews

"Viv Groskop's whip-smart and compelling take on French classics is deliciously entertaining. This book should be required reading for all bibliophiles!" --Lindsey Tramuta "author of The New Paris and The New Parisienne"
"Groskop skillfully juggles memoir, biography, philosophy, and literary criticism to create a delightful tour through some of French literature's greats. As a guide she is top notch: witty, infectiously engaged, and always thoughtful. This book will charm both newcomers and Francophiles alike."--Madeline Miller "author of The Song of Achilles and Circe"
