Bestselling writer Suzy Gershman (dubbed “Super Shopper Suzy” by Oprah) is our answer to Peter Mayle in this heartfelt, breezy, and funny story of starting over in Paris. Suzy had always fantasized about moving to Paris with her husband, but when he dies unexpectedly, she decides to fulfill their dream alone. Here she gives a deliciously conversational chronicle of her first year in Paris and of the dizzying delights and maddening frustrations of learning to be a Parisian. Filled with Gershman’s insider’s tips on everything from cooking the perfect clafoutis to—naturally—shopping, C’est la Vie is delightfully entertaining and captures the exhilarating experience of beginning a new adventure.

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER 'The book's motto - give yourself a break! - is perhaps the most radical resolution of the year' Elle It's time to give yourself a break! You've been bossing yourself around for too long. Where has it gotten you? Maybe it's time you follow the example of the French and let it go. Allow yourself to be angry, be tired, be silly, be passionate - to give yourself a break, and just simply be. Fabrice Midal offers us a new solution to the perennial problem of our too-much, too-fast modern life. It's OK, he urges us, to say no. It's fine to quit the things that don't fulfill you. It's necessary, in fact, to give yourself a break and say, simply, c'est la vie. 'All the talk of Paris' Evening Standard 'A roadmap for avoiding the perils of perfectionism' Get the Gloss 'Powerful, yet playful, challenging and at the same time comforting . . . it can transform the way you look at your life' Tal Ben-Shahar, New York Times bestselling author
