Keith Spicer will be signing copies of his latest book, “Paris Passions : Watching the French Being Brilliant and Bizarre” at Books on Beechwood, from noon to 2PM on Saturday the 26th of September.
About the Book, from Keith’s site: “An exuberant, entertaining book for all lovers of France â€” especially women who cling to romantic illusions, and men who wish they could inspire them. In seventy-two vividly-observed vignettes, profiles and mini-essays, PARIS PASSIONS analyzes Franceâ€™s public and private lives with sharp eye, sharp tongue and sharp sense of humor. Along the way it conveys an intimate feel for everyday life, with its struggles and strains both financial and multicultural. Itâ€™s a quick immersion in French politics, history, culture, economics â€” and the psychology of a people grappling with old demons and new hopes.”
