I have been an unabashed Francophile almost all my life. But I’m certainly not the first American to be captivated by France. We all know the classics—Ernest Hemingway’s A MOVEABLE FEAST, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s TENDER IS THE NIGHT, Julia Child’s MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING—but we remain as obsessed in our modern day as we did then. So, I’m recommending these 7 modern books by and for French-obsessed Americans.
