“Paris in Love” by Eloisa James (memoir, Random House, April 2012, $26.00, 273pp)
With no classes to teach, no committee meetings to attend, no lawn to mow or cars to park, Eloisa revels in the ordinary pleasures of life—discovering corner museums that tourists overlook, chronicling Frenchwomen's sartorial triumphs, walking from one end of Paris to another. She copes with her Italian husband's notions of quality time, her two hilarious children, ages eleven and fifteen, as they navigate schools—not to mention puberty—in a foreign language, and her mother-in-law Marina's raised eyebrow in the kitchen (even as Marina overfeeds Milo, the family dog).
