Jayne Marks is questioning the choices she has made in the years since college she is struggling to pay her bills in Manhattan when she is given the opportunity to move to Paris with her wealthy lover and benefactor, Laurent Moller, who owns and operates two art galleries: one in New York, the other in Paris. He offers her the time and financial support she needs to begin her career as a painter and also challenges her to see who and what she will become if she meets her artistic potential. Laurent, however, seems to have other women in his life and Jayne, too, has an ex-boyfriend, much closer to her own age, whom she still has feelings for. Bringing Paris gloriously to life, Paris, He Said is a novel about desire, beauty and its appreciation, and of finding yourself presented with the things you believe you've always wanted, only to wonder where true happiness lies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sneed writes slyly funny, masterful comedies of manners utterly unlike anything else in American letters. -- Joanna Rakoff, author of My Salinger Year and A Fortunate Age
A novel about art and artifice that is heartfelt, a novel about love and deception that is clear-eyed, witty and wise. Sneed entertains and tantalizes, in the most Parisian manner * Amy Bloom, author of Lucky Us *
A wry, sexy, clever little gem of a novel, Christine Sneed's latest lights up the streets of Paris with elegance and wit * Jami Attenberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Middlesteins *
Art, desire, romance and Paris itself are brought so beautifully together in Christine Sneed's new novel. She writes with contagious affection for her characters, and in the delightful and delighted hours I spent inside Paris, He Said I had that rare feeling we can get from a novel - I was happy to be alive * Scott Spencer, National Book Award finalist and bestselling author of Endless Love *
A delicious treat, studded with wise and beautifully observed detail that places side by side those perpetually fascinating antagonists, the eager, casual American and the meticulous, pleasure-driven French * Roselle Brown, New York Times bestselling author of Before and After *
Impressive . . . Hypnotic . . . Hard to put the book down . . . Sneed is such a gifted writer. -- Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times Book Review (cover), on Little Known Facts
