Denn nur sie schafft es, mit Stil, Charme und beneidenswerter Lässigkeit durchs Leben zu gehen.

Sie ist eine liebevolle Mutter – und fährt trotzdem auch ohne Anhang an die Côte d‘Azur. Sie stellt toujours strikte Regeln auf – nur um jede einzelne von ihnen mit Genuss zu brechen ... In How to be Parisian enthüllen vier Pariser Lifestyle-Ikonen mit viel Selbstironie und Witz den Mythos der Pariser Frau: ihre Allüren, ihre Nonchalance, ihren Style, wie sie liebt und wie sie ihre Tage und Nächte verbringt. Ihre wichtigste Lektion: Um eine echte Pariserin zu sein, kommt es nicht auf die Herkunft an – sondern allein auf die Einstellung!

Deutsche Handwerker, Arbeiter und Dienstmädchen in Paris

Eine vergessene Migration im 19. Jahrhundert

Nicht nur Intellektuelle und Künstler zog es im 19. Jahrhundert aus den deutschen Ländern nach Paris. Handwerker und ungelernte Arbeiter stellten den überwältigenden Großteil der etwa 60 000 Mitglieder umfassenden "deutschen Kolonie" um 1870. Straßenkehrer, Lumpensammler und Kanalarbeiter aus Hessen, Erd- und Fabrikarbeiter aus der Pfalz, deutsche und elsässische Dienstmägde, Schreiner, Tischler, Schneider und Schuhmacher aus Baden, Bayern und dem Niederrhein: Sie machten Paris - neben Berlin und Hamburg - zur "dritten deutschen Großstadt". Die Aufsätze des vorliegenden Bandes von jungen deutschen, österreichischen und französischen Historikern rücken erstmalig genau diese Berufsgruppen in den Mittelpunkt ihres Interesses, wobei der zeitliche Schwerpunkt auf der von der Forschung bisher ebenso vernachlässigten zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts liegt. Der Sammelband ist damit ein Vorstoß in noch weitgehend unbekanntes Terrain und will neben ersten Ergebnissen vor allem Anregungen für weitere Forschungen liefern. Artisans, travailleurs et domestiques allemands à Paris.Une migration oublié du 19e siècle. Les intellectuels et les artistes allemands nétaient pas les seuls à être attirés par Paris au 19e siècle. Artisans et ouvriers non-qualifiés représentaient lécrasante majorité de la "colonie allemande" qui comptait, vers 1870, environ 60.000 personnes. Balayeurs, chiffonniers et égoutiers de Hesse, terrassiers et ouvriers dusine du Palatinat, domestiques allemandes et alsaciennes, menuisiers, ébénistes, tailleurs et cordonniers du pays de Bade, de Bavière et du Rhin inférieur: ils faisaient de Paris la "troisième métropole allemande" après Berlin et Hambourg. Ces catégories dimmigrés, peu étudiées en règle générale, occupent une place centrale dans les contributions quont livrées pour le présent volume quelques jeunes chercheurs allemands, autrichiens et français. La période de la seconde moitié du 19e siècle, jusquici restée dans lombre, fait lobjet dune attention particulière. Ce recueil darticles constitue donc une avancée sur un terrain encore largement inexploré et devrait initier, dans un avenir proche, de nouvelles recherches.

The New York Times Best Seller! Now with an excerpt of Michelle's new book, I'll See You in Paris! Bienvenue à Paris! When April Vogt's boss tells her about an apartment in the ninth arrondissement that has been discovered after being shuttered for the past seventy years, the Sotheby's continental furniture specialist does not hear the words "dust" or "rats" or "decrepit." She hears Paris. She hears escape. Once in France, April quickly learns the apartment is not merely some rich hoarder's repository. Beneath the cobwebs and stale perfumed air is a goldmine, and not because of the actual gold (or painted ostrich eggs or mounted rhinoceros horns or bronze bathtub). First, there's a portrait by one of the masters of the Belle Epoque, Giovanni Boldini. And then there are letters and journals written by the very woman in the painting, Marthe de Florian. These documents reveal that she was more than a renowned courtesan with enviable decolletage. Suddenly April's quest is no longer about the bureaux plats and Louis-style armchairs that will fetch millions at auction. It's about discovering the story behind this charismatic woman. It's about discovering two women, actually. With the help of a salty (and annoyingly sexy) Parisian solicitor and the courtesan's private diaries, April tries to uncover the many secrets buried in the apartment. As she digs into Marthe's life, April can't help but take a deeper look into her own. Having left behind in the States a cheating husband, a family crisis about to erupt, and a career she's been using as the crutch to simply get by, she feels compelled to sort out her own life too. When the things she left bubbling back home begin to boil over, and Parisian delicacies beyond flaky pâtisseries tempt her better judgment, April knows that both she and Marthe deserve happy finales. Whether accompanied by croissants or champagne, this delectable debut novel depicts the Paris of the Belle Epoque and the present day with vibrant and stunning allure. Based on historical events, Michelle Gable's A Paris Apartment will entertain and inspire, as readers embrace the struggles and successes of two very unforgettable women.

A Paris Christmasis the charming tale of how a man who was raised on white bread - and didn't speak a word of French - unexpectedly ended up with the sacred duty of preparing the Christmas dinner for a venerable Parisian family. Having fallen in love with a French woman and impulsively moved to Paris to marry her, LA-based film critic John Baxter could hardly refuse the challenge of cooking up a feast for his sceptical in-laws. But what to cook? And how to make it palatable to such a terrifying band of gastronomes? We follow Baxter's misadventures and delicious triumphs as he visits the farthest corners of France in search of the country's best recipes and ingredients. Irresistible and fascinating, this book is a cultural and culinary education which teaches us the difference between food that is just edible and something that feeds the soul. Previously published in the UK in 2011 with the title "Cooking for Claudine".

Into A Paris Quartier

Reine Margot's Chapel & Other Haunts of St.-Germain

As a child, Diane Johnson was entranced by The Three Musketeers, dashing 17th-century residents of the famous romantic quartier called St.-Germain-des-Prés. Now, the paperback edition of her delightful book will take even more Americans to the richly historic part of the city that has always attracted us, from Ben Franklin in the 18th-century to raffish novelist Henry Miller in the 20th. Modern St.-Germain is lively and prosperous, and fifty years ago its heady mix of jazz and existentialism defined urbane cool, but Johnson takes a longer view. "Beside the shades of Jean-Paul Sartre and Edith Piaf," she writes, "there is another crowd of resident ghosts... misty figures in plumed hats whose fortunes and passions were enacted among these beautiful, imposing buildings." From her kitchen window, she looks out on a chapel begun by Reine Margot, wife of Henri IV; nearby streets are haunted by the shades of two sinister cardinals, Mazarin and Richelieu, as well as four famed queens and at least five kings. Delacroix, Corot, Ingres, David, and Manet all lived in St.-Germain; Oscar Wilde died there; and everybody who was anybody visited sooner or later. With her delicious imagination and wry, opinionated voice, Diane Johnson makes a companionable and fascinating guide to a classic neighborhood as cosmopolitan as it is quintessentially French.

Ihr Chef bei Sotheby's schickt sie nach Paris, um ein Appartement zu begutachten, das 70 Jahre lang kein Mensch betreten hat.

Und genau diese findet sie: goldene Straußeneier, antike Möbel, eine bronzene Badewanne und ein äußerst wertvolles Porträt der damaligen Bewohnerin. Zudem entdeckt sie zahlreiche Briefe und Tagebücher. April taucht ein in die faszinierende Welt der Marthe de Florian, einer bekannten Pariser Kurtisane, zu deren Kundschaft Würdenträger und Staatschefs gehörten. Wer war sie, wie lebte sie, und warum verschwand sie am Vorabend des Zweiten Weltkriegs aus ihrem Appartement, um nie wieder zurückzukehren? Nach einer wahren Geschichte: Dieser Roman ist eine faszinierende Reise in die Vergangenheit.
