"The best of America drifts to Paris...France has the only two things toward which we drift as we grow older -- intelligence and good manners." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
"French literature scholar Reyl's first novel is rich and magnetic, a snapshot of one young woman's life in a city at once ancient and bubbling over with life." - Booklist
ABOUT THE BOOK It's 1989, the Berlin Wall is coming down, and Kate has just graduated from Yale, eager to pursue her dreams as a fledgling painter. When she receives a job offer to work as the assistant to Lydia Schell, a famous American photographer in Paris, she immediately accepts. It's a chance not only to be at the center of it all, but also to return to France for the first time since she was a lonely nine-year-old girl, sent to the outskirts of Paris to live with cousins while her father was dying.
In compelling and sympathetic prose, Hilary Reyl perfectly captures this portrait of a precocious, ambitious young woman struggling to define herself in a vibrant world that spirals out of her control. Lessons in French is at once a love letter to Paris and the story of a young woman finding herself, her moral compass, and, finally, her true family.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR Hilary Reyl has a Ph.D. in French literature from NYU with a focus on the 19th century and has spent several years working and studying in France. She lives in New York City with her family. Lessons in French (Simon & Schuster, March 5, 2013) is her first novel.

Act 22:17 And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; Acts22:20 And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
Under Roman rule, Lutetia was thoroughly Romanised with a population estimated at around 8,000 people. It was Christianised in the 3rd century, traditionally when St Denis became the city's first bishop. The process was not entirely peaceful – in about 250 St Denis and two companions were arrested and decapitated on the hill of Mons Mercurius, where Roman foundations have been found, thereafter known as Mons Martyrum (Martyrs' Hill, or Montmartre).
Lutetia was renamed Paris in 360, taking its name from the Gallic Parisii tribe name.
