A self-described Francophile since the age of nine, Rosecrans Baldwin had always dreamed of living in France. So when an offer presented itself to work at a Parisian ad agency, he couldn't turn it down--even though he had no experience in advertising, and even though he hardly spoke French.
But the Paris that Rosecrans and his wife, Rachel, arrived in wasn't the romantic city he remembered, and over the next eighteen months, his dogged American optimism was put to the test: at work (where he wrote booklets on breastfeeding), at home (in the hub of a massive construction project), and at every confusing dinner party in between. A hilarious and refreshingly honest look at one of our most beloved cities, "Paris, I Love You" is the story of a young man whose preconceptions are usurped by the oddities of a vigorous, nervy metropolis--which is just what he needs to fall in love with Paris a second time.
