The perfect book for anyone who has ever dreamed of living in Paris

Profiles of twenty real-life women of Paris - artists, activists, booksellers, and filmmakers, aged fourteen to seventy, living in tiny attic studios, grand apartments, or houseboats - are accompanied by more than 100 full-colour photographs by French it-girl and fashion designer Jeanne Damas, as well as tips on secret Parisian hideaways and the French art de vivre: from the five types of red wine to order depending on the occasion, and the coolest bars to drink them in, to the best red lipsticks, and places to be kissed.

In Paris dispels the myth that there is only one type of Parisian woman, and offers a rare glimpse of the city that real Parisiennes live in - taking us into their homes, their careers, their style - and what being Parisian means to them.

Witty, elegant, and modern, In Paris reveals the secret to living like a Parisian, wherever and whoever you are.
