Denn nur sie schafft es, mit Stil, Charme und beneidenswerter Lässigkeit durchs Leben zu gehen.

Sie ist eine liebevolle Mutter – und fährt trotzdem auch ohne Anhang an die Côte d‘Azur. Sie stellt toujours strikte Regeln auf – nur um jede einzelne von ihnen mit Genuss zu brechen ... In How to be Parisian enthüllen vier Pariser Lifestyle-Ikonen mit viel Selbstironie und Witz den Mythos der Pariser Frau: ihre Allüren, ihre Nonchalance, ihren Style, wie sie liebt und wie sie ihre Tage und Nächte verbringt. Ihre wichtigste Lektion: Um eine echte Pariserin zu sein, kommt es nicht auf die Herkunft an – sondern allein auf die Einstellung!

Chicago 1920: Hadley Richardson hat die Liebe und das Glück bereits aufgegeben, als sie Ernest Hemingway trifft und sofort von seinem guten Aussehen, seiner Gefühlstiefe und seiner Kunst, mit Worten zu verführen, angezogen wird. Die beiden heiraten und gehen nach Paris, wo sie Teil einer schillernden Gruppe Amerikaner werden, unter ihnen Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound und die Fitzgeralds. Doch im Paris der goldenen 20er – fiebrig, glamourös, verwegen – lassen sich Familie und Treue kaum aufrechterhalten. Während Hadley, inzwischen Mutter, mit Eifersucht und Selbstzweifeln ringt und Ernests literarische Arbeit allmählich Früchte trägt, wird das Paar mit einer Enttäuschung konfrontiert, die das Ende all dessen bedeutet, was es gemeinsam erträumt hatte...

Deutsche Handwerker, Arbeiter und Dienstmädchen in Paris

Eine vergessene Migration im 19. Jahrhundert

Nicht nur Intellektuelle und Künstler zog es im 19. Jahrhundert aus den deutschen Ländern nach Paris. Handwerker und ungelernte Arbeiter stellten den überwältigenden Großteil der etwa 60 000 Mitglieder umfassenden "deutschen Kolonie" um 1870. Straßenkehrer, Lumpensammler und Kanalarbeiter aus Hessen, Erd- und Fabrikarbeiter aus der Pfalz, deutsche und elsässische Dienstmägde, Schreiner, Tischler, Schneider und Schuhmacher aus Baden, Bayern und dem Niederrhein: Sie machten Paris - neben Berlin und Hamburg - zur "dritten deutschen Großstadt". Die Aufsätze des vorliegenden Bandes von jungen deutschen, österreichischen und französischen Historikern rücken erstmalig genau diese Berufsgruppen in den Mittelpunkt ihres Interesses, wobei der zeitliche Schwerpunkt auf der von der Forschung bisher ebenso vernachlässigten zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts liegt. Der Sammelband ist damit ein Vorstoß in noch weitgehend unbekanntes Terrain und will neben ersten Ergebnissen vor allem Anregungen für weitere Forschungen liefern. Artisans, travailleurs et domestiques allemands à Paris.Une migration oublié du 19e siècle. Les intellectuels et les artistes allemands nétaient pas les seuls à être attirés par Paris au 19e siècle. Artisans et ouvriers non-qualifiés représentaient lécrasante majorité de la "colonie allemande" qui comptait, vers 1870, environ 60.000 personnes. Balayeurs, chiffonniers et égoutiers de Hesse, terrassiers et ouvriers dusine du Palatinat, domestiques allemandes et alsaciennes, menuisiers, ébénistes, tailleurs et cordonniers du pays de Bade, de Bavière et du Rhin inférieur: ils faisaient de Paris la "troisième métropole allemande" après Berlin et Hambourg. Ces catégories dimmigrés, peu étudiées en règle générale, occupent une place centrale dans les contributions quont livrées pour le présent volume quelques jeunes chercheurs allemands, autrichiens et français. La période de la seconde moitié du 19e siècle, jusquici restée dans lombre, fait lobjet dune attention particulière. Ce recueil darticles constitue donc une avancée sur un terrain encore largement inexploré et devrait initier, dans un avenir proche, de nouvelles recherches.

The New York Times Best Seller! Now with an excerpt of Michelle's new book, I'll See You in Paris! Bienvenue à Paris! When April Vogt's boss tells her about an apartment in the ninth arrondissement that has been discovered after being shuttered for the past seventy years, the Sotheby's continental furniture specialist does not hear the words "dust" or "rats" or "decrepit." She hears Paris. She hears escape. Once in France, April quickly learns the apartment is not merely some rich hoarder's repository. Beneath the cobwebs and stale perfumed air is a goldmine, and not because of the actual gold (or painted ostrich eggs or mounted rhinoceros horns or bronze bathtub). First, there's a portrait by one of the masters of the Belle Epoque, Giovanni Boldini. And then there are letters and journals written by the very woman in the painting, Marthe de Florian. These documents reveal that she was more than a renowned courtesan with enviable decolletage. Suddenly April's quest is no longer about the bureaux plats and Louis-style armchairs that will fetch millions at auction. It's about discovering the story behind this charismatic woman. It's about discovering two women, actually. With the help of a salty (and annoyingly sexy) Parisian solicitor and the courtesan's private diaries, April tries to uncover the many secrets buried in the apartment. As she digs into Marthe's life, April can't help but take a deeper look into her own. Having left behind in the States a cheating husband, a family crisis about to erupt, and a career she's been using as the crutch to simply get by, she feels compelled to sort out her own life too. When the things she left bubbling back home begin to boil over, and Parisian delicacies beyond flaky pâtisseries tempt her better judgment, April knows that both she and Marthe deserve happy finales. Whether accompanied by croissants or champagne, this delectable debut novel depicts the Paris of the Belle Epoque and the present day with vibrant and stunning allure. Based on historical events, Michelle Gable's A Paris Apartment will entertain and inspire, as readers embrace the struggles and successes of two very unforgettable women.

A Paris Christmasis the charming tale of how a man who was raised on white bread - and didn't speak a word of French - unexpectedly ended up with the sacred duty of preparing the Christmas dinner for a venerable Parisian family. Having fallen in love with a French woman and impulsively moved to Paris to marry her, LA-based film critic John Baxter could hardly refuse the challenge of cooking up a feast for his sceptical in-laws. But what to cook? And how to make it palatable to such a terrifying band of gastronomes? We follow Baxter's misadventures and delicious triumphs as he visits the farthest corners of France in search of the country's best recipes and ingredients. Irresistible and fascinating, this book is a cultural and culinary education which teaches us the difference between food that is just edible and something that feeds the soul. Previously published in the UK in 2011 with the title "Cooking for Claudine".

Into A Paris Quartier

Reine Margot's Chapel & Other Haunts of St.-Germain

Author: Diane Johnson

Publisher: National Geographic Books

ISBN: 1426201834

Category: History

Page: 224

View: 7877

As a child, Diane Johnson was entranced by The Three Musketeers, dashing 17th-century residents of the famous romantic quartier called St.-Germain-des-Prés. Now, the paperback edition of her delightful book will take even more Americans to the richly historic part of the city that has always attracted us, from Ben Franklin in the 18th-century to raffish novelist Henry Miller in the 20th. Modern St.-Germain is lively and prosperous, and fifty years ago its heady mix of jazz and existentialism defined urbane cool, but Johnson takes a longer view. "Beside the shades of Jean-Paul Sartre and Edith Piaf," she writes, "there is another crowd of resident ghosts... misty figures in plumed hats whose fortunes and passions were enacted among these beautiful, imposing buildings." From her kitchen window, she looks out on a chapel begun by Reine Margot, wife of Henri IV; nearby streets are haunted by the shades of two sinister cardinals, Mazarin and Richelieu, as well as four famed queens and at least five kings. Delacroix, Corot, Ingres, David, and Manet all lived in St.-Germain; Oscar Wilde died there; and everybody who was anybody visited sooner or later. With her delicious imagination and wry, opinionated voice, Diane Johnson makes a companionable and fascinating guide to a classic neighborhood as cosmopolitan as it is quintessentially French.

From a Paris Garret

Author: Richard Le Gallienne

Publisher: Pickle Partners Publishing

ISBN: 1787205150

Category: History

Page: 330

IN his preface, Mr. Le Gallienne is modest enough to say that this volume is not a guide-book. And yet it is. Those who follow him while he rambles about Paris must know more of that delectable city than others not so fortunate as to traipse along. To move with a poet down those old, haunted streets—ah! what a privilege it will be to thousands of us; for we shall be bound to find vistas we may have missed before. Mr. Le Gallienne’s love of Paris is well known. It has come to be almost a sensational “affair” of the spirit which neither the loveliest city in the world nor the dreaming poet has ever wished to conceal. There is an enchantment in the very name by which the world calls the city on the Seine, and no one can utter it without a glow, an ecstasy. The perfume and the sweetness of it are captured in these beautiful, leisurely pages; but likewise one will find here an old and almost forgotten city, full of vigor and strength, full of a humanity and a romantic history that warm the heart and cause the blood to run faster. I venture to say that no Frenchman could be more passionately fond of Paris than the English author of this living book; for to him, Paris is not, as it is to so many thoughtless visitors, merely a “light woman.” To him it is—Home.
