Achat E-Book : An accidental parisian - Juliet Young
Carefree, confident and curious about the world around her, Juliet takes leave from her comfortable existence back home and embarks on a journey to Paris. Chronicling her story from Toronto to France where she lives and works today, we follow Juliet while she discovers the city and its residents, hunts for a job and an apartment, works in an advertising agency and then at Reuters, all while rollicking adventures-romantic and otherwise-are thrust upon her. Readers are regaled with laugh-out-loud anecdotes: a zany job interview and a hilarious typing test; barred from entering the USA while attempting to visit her boyfriend in New York; sequestered in a police van with six French cops; sucker-punched in the metro; and many more. A feminist, Juliet finds France to be a deeply patriarchal and sexist society, and the women acquiescent. At the book's core are Juliet's loving and successful parents. She plans to return home to them, and settle permanently. But when they die, her world comes crashing down. An Accidental Parisian documents the breakdown of a once-felicitous family. This book is called An Accidental Parisian because it was never the author's intention to live abroad for so long. In an endeavor to understand how this happened, she must cast back to her beginnings-and her parents' beginnings-and piece together the forces, choices and circumstances that brought her to where she is today: a French national and citizen of three countries, still living and working in Paris.
