Five of the Best Alice Munro Stories

Thu, 12 Dec 2013 19:43:45 +0100

So it has happened. On Tuesday, Alice Munro’s daughter Jenny accepted the Nobel Prize on her mother’s behalf, and I admit I was a bit giddy watching the ceremony online (I never thought another person winning a prize could make...



Lauren Elkin’s Une année à Venise

Tue, 01 May 2012 13:39:56 +0200

My friend Lauren’s delightful debut novel begins with some reasons why a person might flee their comfortable life in New York to experience one that is more alienating and unfathomable and rich and gratifying in Venice. You could imagine that...



Soirée Faber Castell

Sun, 18 Dec 2011 15:33:31 +0100

My presence at the party was in no way mandatory. Denis was invited to work there, drawing guests at the anniversary party of Faber Castell, an art supply company that has been around for 250 years (in other words, about...



Fair Trade

Fri, 27 May 2011 12:30:32 +0200

A friend called me "reclusive" recently (I'm writing my thesis!), but I did make it out Wednesday night to the book swap party at Le Carmen** – a new literary event in Paris where you bring a book to exchange...



Recently Read: Anne Marsella’s The Baby of Belleville

Thu, 14 Apr 2011 16:53:32 +0200

In Anne Marsella’s* warm and funny The Baby of Belleville, hierarchy is put to rest, making room for an all-inclusive Paris, a Paris where equal time is given to French feminist philosophers, aristocrats, plumbers, DJs, shepherdesses and kung fu experts....

Joanna at The Wellcome

Sat, 19 Mar 2011 13:50:42 +0100

If you’re in London this weekend, it’s the last chance to see Joanna’s amazing installation at the Wellcome. It’s called The Art of Dying, and it’s beautiful.



Optimo Hats

Tue, 15 Mar 2011 15:46:08 +0100

Recently I've been working on web content and crafting newsletters* for Optimo Hats in Chicago (I've written about master hatmaker Graham Thompson before in Chicago magazine). And the day has finally come: their new site has launched. Gorgeous! I especially...



"Le discours d’un roi" n’est pas "Discours du récit"

Wed, 19 Jan 2011 19:52:15 +0100

In the Paris 8 lit department, they're mad for Gérard Genette, so I’ve ended up reading Discours du récit for a few of my classes. So much Genette love, addling my noodle, that when I saw this poster in the...



Bonne Année!

Sat, 08 Jan 2011 17:47:07 +0100

I wish you all a happy and healthy new year! The happy new year card my boyfriend Denis sent out. The painting is his own. He's done trees that seem to be glowing in several paintings lately; he calls them...

Fri, 03 Dec 2010 10:17:46 +0100

We’ll start with Départment Féminin, best edit of any luxury multimarque anywhere, and located in Toulouse. Luckily for us, they also have a website. I’ve talked about the founder Carole Benazet’s elegant home here before, as well as her store....



Les Cad- OOH

Image: Behind the scenes of the Département Féminin Christmas newsletter. What does an American give a French person for Christmas? An L.L. Bean boat bag, a J. Crew sweater, something by Pendleton – I know French people who leave room...



Red Loubi Slippers

Fri, 19 Nov 2010 14:47:06 +0100

These are my new Christian Louboutin shoes. I translated an in-house documentary for them recently and they invited me to their private sale last night. I was in and out in 30 minutes and, needless to say, I love what...



Nighthawks, or the French experiment with crepuscular shopping

Thu, 09 Sep 2010 11:39:38 +0200

When I saw the crowds on the Avenue Montaigne for Vogue Fashion Celebration Night this week, mostly young people in front of shops like Chanel and Gucci, where the usually discreet atmosphere was replaced by music (with base!) and throbbing...



State of the Art

Jeanne and Marie Line with Penelope Fillon at the May 8th opening It takes a fairy godmother to get Cinderella to the ball, but my aunt got Penelope Fillon, wife of France’s Prime Minister -- not too shabby either! Madame...



Oh hi, it's fashion week again.

Wed, 10 Mar 2010 11:51:07 +0100

They should start serving CC stamped peanuts at the Chanel shows. What hoopla! The invite had a sketch by Karl of a polar bear, and then the set included a couple of whopping icebergs (imported from Sweden). Karl’s Dr. Zhivago...

La Mode, La Mode

Mon, 05 Oct 2009 00:18:24 +0200

Let’s not bury the lead. My big scoop of the day is that I met Dries Van Noten’s dog. He’s an Airedale Terrier, and his name is Harry. (Sadly I did not meet Dries, but if I ever do, I’ve...



Beigbeder does stand-up

Thu, 24 Sep 2009 14:03:20 +0200

Prix de Flore-winning author Frédéric Beigbeder may have a second calling as a film comedian. I see him in a Judd Apatow boy-man type role, with a dose of French swagger. Last night was Paris’s first Literary Death Match, a...
