Publisher's Summary

French or Faux?

When Scott Carpenter moves from Minnesota to Paris, little does he suspect the dramas that await: Scheming neighbors, police denunciations, surly demonstrators, cooking disasters, medical mishaps - not to mention all those lectures about cheese! It turns out that nothing in the City of Light can be taken for granted, where even trips to the grocery store lead to adventure.

In French Like Moi, Carpenter guides us through the merry labyrinth of the everyday, one hilarious faux pas after another. Through it all, he keeps his eye on the central mystery of what makes the French French (and Midwesterners Midwestern).

A joy to read!

I lived in Paris for five years and Scott Carpenter has captured my experience better than anyone else, including the previous title holder, Peter Mayle. His phrasing and analogies of life, the people, and the frustrations and joys of Paris elicited a smile, even an audible laugh, at the rate of about one every two pages. Well worth the time. You'll also be sorry when it ends.

Fun Romp Through Paris

As someone who has enjoyed quite a bit of time in the city of Paris, it was fun to listen to the authors experiences, I found myself often smiling when they paralleled my own. I am always glad when the author reads their own work knowing just when to add a pause or emphasize a phrase

Loved the Humor

Got off to a slow start but loved the intertwined humor at the end of each chapter
