Product description

About the Author

That's Paris is a collection of fiction and non-fiction stories from people who have traveled to Paris, lived in Paris or never even set foot in Paris but dreamed about what it would be like to visit. Among our contributors are: the author of three fashion books, the writer of a recently released book on Rwanda, Amazon best-selling authors, journalists, a personal chef and winners of various blogging awards. That's Paris features new talent as well as established writers, but everyone has one thing in common—their stories capture the essence of what it's like to breathe Parisian air.

Check out the full list of contributors and their bios.

Foreword by: Stephen Clarke

Authors: Michael Attard, Audrey M. Chapuis, Adria J. Cimino, Sarah del Rio, DryChick, Leslie Floyd, Jennie Goutet, Amy Lynne Hayes, April Lily Heise, Vicki Lesage, Elle Marie, Cheryl McAlister, Emily Monaco, Lucia Paul, Didier Quémener, Laura Schalk, Brooke Takhar, Marie Vareille, Frédérique Veysset, Lisa Webb, Anna Weeks, April Weeks, David Whitehouse

'That's Paris: Life, Love and Sarcasm in the City of Light' is a collection of short stories and essays about the capital city of France and to many the city of romance: Paris. Numerous authors, such as Vicki Lesage, Marie Vareille and Adria J. Cimino have contributed to this anthology by writing about the same place, but in various ways: whether it's the city itself, French food, thoughts about the city, or the Parisian atmosphere. Filled with both fiction and non-fiction, the collection will take you across the border and make it feel as if you're walking on the cobble stoned streets of the City of Light yourself.

Even though I am not the biggest fan of the famous City of Light myself, I still really enjoyed this anthology of both fiction and non-fiction stories and essays linked to Paris in one way or another. It's great to have a collection of short stories to pick up every now and again, because it's the ideal book to sit down with if you only have a short period of time to read, such as your lunch break or the bus ride home after a working day. 'That's Paris' has something for everyone since it includes a diverse collection of stories by different authors from all kinds of backgrounds.

The collection includes a few stories in French (with the English translation as well) and, as with every anthology, there were some pieces I really liked and some that didn't really do anything for me personally. Some of my favourites have to be Vicki Lesage's contributions, the short story by Vicki's mother Elle Marie about her daughter moving to Paris and how that influenced her life, Cheryl McAlister's story 'A Scoop of Henry', and Didier Quemener's 'Half Past Midnight'. For people who can't visit a particular place, what better way to get to know it than to read about it?

This is a fun read, easy to dip in and out of and contains a good mix of fiction and non-fiction stories about Paris, written by native Parisians and those who just love Paris. Some are real life experiences by those who have made Paris their home, some are travel memoir snippets of time spent in Paris and some are short stories with emotion, romance and Paris as the perfect backdrop. I especially enjoyed the short stories that were written in French as although my French is now quite good I rarely choose to read in French so it was a good test for me. Don’t worry though if your French isn’t up to reading as the translations are provided too, which is a nice touch.

Some of the stories are from names that are familiar to me but the great thing about an anthology is that it gives an insight into authors whose work I haven’t come across before and I now have a list of names to look out for. Not all the stories were quite as much my thing as others but there were some very special ones that will stay with me.

I was sent a copy of this book for an honest review.

'That's Paris' is a great selection of well selected anecdotes, all written by people who love the city of Paris. Each tale is short, which makes the book easy to read on the go or when you have little time. I liked that with the originally French written stories they had the original and an English translation.
All the stories were fun, real, honest, well written, and I couldn't possibly pick a favourite.

Thanks to Vicki for supplying an advanced copy.

This book was not what I expected but after reading it, I did enjoy it a lot. I love to read anything about Paris. I was a bit confused when some of the short stories were all in French.
