Come meet Ellen Sussman, author of On a Night Like This, whose new book French Lessons has received rave reviews. This is the story of three French tutors and their American charges, as the tutors lead the Americans through an unforgettable day in Paris.
As the Americans meet with their tutors - Josie (a young teacher) with Nico (a poet), Riley (a spirited but lonely housewife) with Phillippe (a shameless flirt), and Jeremy (the quiet husband of a famous actress) with Chantal (a beauty) - each succumbs to unexpected passion and unpredictable adventures.
With writing that reflects the charm of the setting and a cynical wit, Sussman makes the romance of Paris come alive without lapsing into cliche. — Robin Micheli, People Magazine
