From the internationally best-selling author of SARAH'S KEY comes an irreverent yet heartfelt collection that examines our most intimate and forbidden desiresDoes a fruit taste its sweetest when it is forbidden? Is that which is prohibited always the most pleasurable? In this passionate and perceptive collection, Tatiana de Rosnay paints a portrait of the most forbidden of loves, in many different shades--sometimes tragic, sometimes humorous, sometimes heartfelt, always with a dry wit and an unflinching authenticity. A PARIS AFFAIR is an enjoyable

I was really looking forward to “A Paris Affair” by Tatiana de Rosnay. I have to say that I was really disappointed. I just couldn’t get into this story and I feel like the characters were lacking. This book is a collection of short stories and I feel like the time that was needed to be put into this book was just not there. These short stories focus a lot of marriage disputes and problems. I really hope that I don’t have to deal with some of the issues that the characters had to deal with because I don’t think I would be able to handle it. I really wish the characters weren’t so cold with each other. I think that is the part that is most disappointing to me.
