How does French people handle bureaucracy?
Is it true that Parisian women are the most stylish?
How Parisian people live their everyday lives?
You can find the aswers to all these question in Alice Wonder’s travelling novels. She is actually a Hungarian writer who uses a stage name for publishing. Her novels start when she was 31-years-old, fell in love with a man and decided to move to the City of Love, Paris. After 9 years in Paris she and her husband decided to move to another country because of work issues. They chose Italy and a whole new chapter in their life started.
Alice Wonder’s novels:
1. Champs-Él…izé (Champs Élysées)
2. Párizsi napló (Parisian diary)
3. Párizs, c’est la vie! (Paris, c’est la vie!)
4. Ciao Itália! (Ciao, Italy!)
(Unfortunatelly the books only exist so far in Hungarian.)
What did I like about these books?
I really liked the writer’s funny style, the way she writes about how she stayed calm even in challenging situations.
I recommend the books to people who are moving to Paris and want to find out more about expat life. Or just like me have a platonic love for the French capital.
