    This Book is a memoir not a lifestyle book She focuses on her mentor and how her in laws arrange their oh so French homes and what makes them that way The author and her French husband have lived in a NYC apartment but never offered any tips on how to translate the “every room has its purpose and should be used solely for that purpose”I had some curiosity about the alleged “French lifestyle” as interpreted through the experience of an American woman but parts of this book were downright offensive At one point M Postel Vijay got quite petulant that his lady friend wanted a snack and would therefore ruin the experience of their shared lunch Dude Share the snack He also had a hissy fit that non French cast and crew on a movie set were not being appreciatively French of the food and so disrespecting himThere is very very little here you can use if you don’t own a residence you can do work on and one large enough to “give each room its purpose” and have a fireplaceI enjoyed the sections about the home library the home office and the entryway—but it was nothing new and certainly not worth the money I paid Get this from the library Don’t even check it out take a few notes there and you’ll have gotten all the value a modern urban dweller can get out of this unless expat memoirs enthrall you
