The Paris Novel

When Stella's mother dies, she leaves her a trip to Paris in her will and a directive that she must take her inheritance in traveler checks to be spent in their entirety while she is there. Stella takes all her accrued vacation days from the publishing house where she is employed and books a flight. Stella's trip begins in the same vein as her old life in New York, safe and solitary, until she stumbles upon an original Christian Dior dress in a vintage shop. The dress and the adventures that follow change her life through friendships, food, wine, and fashion. A tour de force through Parisian haunts such as Shakespeare and Company, Les Deux Magots, Jeu de Paume, and uncovering a mystery about a mysterious century-old Manet painting. This book is a delight!
