"When her estranged mother dies, Stella is left with an unusual inheritance: a one-way plane ticket and a note reading "Go to Paris." But Stella is hardly cut out for adventure; a childhood trauma, and her mother's negligent parenting style, have kept her strictly confined to her comfort zone, even in adulthood. When her boss encourages her to time off, Stella resigns herself to honor her mother's wishes, even if a spontaneous trip to Paris is the last thing she wants. Even in a new city, Stella can't help but fall into old habits, living cautiously and frugally. But one day, she stumbles across a consignment store and tries on a fabulous vintage dress. The shopkeeper allows her to borrow it for the day if she goes on an adventure. So Stella decides to treat herself to oysters and wine for lunch, where she has a chance encounter with a dapper octogenarian art collector, Jules. He immediately recognizes Stella needs a proper introduction to the magical side of Paris and takes her under his wing. Amid decadent meals and encounters with a veritable who's who of the 1980s Paris art and culinary worlds, Stella begins to understand what it might mean to live a bigger life. As weeks pass, Stella ends up living at the bookstore Shakespeare & Company as a "tumbleweed," uncovering a hundred-year-old art mystery, and unlocking a passion for food that may be connected to her past, and the true reason she has been sent to Paris. A feast for the senses, this novel is a testament to what it means to live deliciously: to be authentic, to embrace adventure, and to find a home in the last place you might expect"--… (més)

Paris, Art, Food, Fashion….what’s not to love?? Ruth Reichl captured my attention in her previous memoirs about her life in the food industry from cook to critic. The writing in this novel doesn’t reach the height of her memoirs, but the setting and descriptions are worth the journey. The main character is a shell of a young girl when we meet her, but she finds herself and her passions as she discovers Paris with a wealthy art critic — not a romantic interest, but a great mentor and friend. There are many references to real characters and events from history and the current 1980s setting. If you love Paris and you are looking for a fun romp, I recommend it. ( )

This book was written for me…Paris, food, intrigue, history. 1980’s Paris. Young woman discovers a talent for tasting and cooking, becomes a Tumbleweed in Shakespeare and company, makes friends, finds her father. Read it again! ( )

What I liked about Ruth Reichl's new novel is the realistic setting of 1980's Paris and characters who are known from the city's recent past. Food and wine talk flows throughout the book and having been written by the former editor of Gourmet magazine and resturant critic Reichl, it will probably be of interest to foodies, though I personally tired of it.

The plot is mundane, just a new take on a young stuggling woman meets rich man theme, but the desciptions of Paris neighborhoods and street scenes as well as the overall feel of the book kept me reading. In the early chapters there is a section that made me think of Sarah Addison Allen's writing and from time to time I was also reminded of Woody Allen's movie "Midnight in Paris",though here there are chefs in place of the writers. Overall a good weekend read. ( )

I have read and enjoyed four of Ruth Reichl’s nonfiction/memoirs, but I was unable to finish this tale of fiction. The writing was more “tell” than “show.” I didn’t like the main character – she was not sympathetic nor believable. The plot was ponderous. And more than anything else, the descriptive child sex abuse episode which occurred at the beginning of the novel was disturbing. *Content Warning*

The best part about this book was when I gave myself permission to stop reading. ( )

Having just read a novel centered on food that left me with no sense of the taste and feel of the experience, I was glad to get my hands on Ruth Reichl's novel. I know from her nonfiction how vivid she is in details, and she didn't disappoint. I liked the story, too, and also learning what prompted her to write a novel. Cheers to you Ruth. Bon Appétit!
2024 read. ( )
