About the Book

In the best escapist tradition of Lunch in Paris, a woman runs away to one of the most romantic cities in the world, but with a little extra baggage ...

'What a beautiful and delightful tasting menu of a book: the kids, the plump dog, the Italian husband. Reading this memoir was like wandering through a Parisian patisserie in a dream. I absolutely loved it.' - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love After years of living vicariously for years through her romantic heroines, bestselling novelist Eloisa James takes a leap that most of us can only daydream about. She sells her house, leaves her job as a Shakespeare professor behind, and packs her husband and two protesting children off to the city of her dreams. Grand plans are abandoned as she falls under the spell of daily life as a Parisienne - exquisite food, long walks by the Seine, reading in bed, displays of effortless chic around every corner and being reminded of what really matters in a place where people seem to kiss all the time. An irresistable love letter to a city that will make you want to run away, PARIS IN LOVE is also a joyful testament to the pleasures of savouring life. 'I never did learn to live in the moment, but I did learn how to waste them. It was a glorious lesson.'
