dreaming in french

Right now I am reading 'Dreaming in French' by Alice Kaplan. I'm only a few chapters in but it is completely engrossing. Kaplan profiles three young remarkable women on their journeys to Paris in the 50s/60s. This book has me constantly jotting down notes in my journal so I can go back and look up the books they were reading during that time and various passages about how they felt being an young American woman abroad. I can already say that I highly recommend this book.

Fuck yeah - I have been SEARCHING for a book to read. This is the one!!! Sadly, I read like only one book a year. Last summer was Just Kids which also featured Patti Smith in Paris. I've retraced some of her steps while here. Now I can retrace theirs!
