Lisa’s August Recommendation

foreignForeign Tongue by Vanina Marsot

“French life, french language, and a love for words and their meaning: all this and more are within the pages of Foreign Tongue. Anna, the protaganist, leaves California for a stay at her aunt’s Parisian apartment. Anna has dual citizenship (her father is a French expatriate living in the USA) and this affords her a familiarity with the French life and language. Escaping from a love gone wrong in California, she nonetheless finds herself drawn into a love affair in Paris. She immerses herself into Parisian life, renewing old friendships and getting a job translating an erotic novel into English. All of this leads her to explore the multi-layered flavor and language of Paris. The charm for the reader is the accessibility of a French experience without ever leaving home.”
