The Los Angeles Times bestseller! "A Gallic prescription for living a life that is richer, more sensual, messier, and a lot more fun" (Boston Globe) It's not the shoes, the scarves, or the lipstick that gives French women their allure. It's this: French women don't give a damn. They don't expect men to understand them. They don't care about being liked or being like everyone else. They accept the passage of time, celebrate the immediacy of pleasure, embrace ambiguity and imperfection, and prefer having a life to making a living. In What French Women Know, Debra Ollivier goes beyond stale ooh- la-la stereotypes, challenging ingrained notions about sex, love, marriage, motherhood, and everything in between. With savvy, provocative thinking from French mistresses and maidens alike, Ollivier presents a refreshing counterpoint to the tired love dogma of our times, and offers realistic, liberating alternatives from the land that knows how to love.

»Ich habe versucht, ein Buch zu schreiben, wie ich es mir damals bei meinen ersten Schritten in die Arbeitswelt gewünscht hätte. Es gibt Ratschläge, wie Sie vorankommen und befördert werden, aber darüber hinaus geht es vor allem darum, wie Sie ein glückliches Leben führen können, selbst wenn Sie am Arbeitsplatz Ihr Bestes geben. Wir arbeiten nicht in einem Vakuum. Unsere Arbeit ist Teil unseres Lebens.« Die ehemalige Chefin von Veuve Clicquot USA gibt in ihrem dritten Buch lebendige Ratschläge, wie Frauen im Beruf ihre eigenen Leidenschaften und Talente entdecken können, ihre kommunikativen Gaben nutzen, mit Alltagsstress umgehen und - nach der Philosophie französischer Frauen - auf die schönen Dinge des Lebens dennoch nicht verzichten. Ein stilvoller, witziger und kluger Ratgeber für alle berufstätigen Frauen.

Ever wonder what gives French women that je ne sais quoi? At first you might think it's the elegant figure, matchless style, and mysterious allure. Then you realize those qualities don't come from just anywhere. They come from generations of women raised to cultivate an extraordinary sense of self. French women know who they are, like who they are, and excel at presenting who they are. The rest of us are often susceptible to the next fad, the new thing, the ultimate diet. We're always seeking, instead of realizing that what we already are may be just right. Rarely does an American woman feel as comfortable in her own skin as her French counterpart. And rarely does an American woman have that essentially French ability to say no---to refuse anything that doesn't suit her, whether that thing is a job, a man, or the season's latest styles. Provocative and practical, lively and intelligent, Entre Nous unlocks the mystery of the French girl and the secrets of her self-possession. Why do French women always look inimitably stylish? How do they manage to sit in a café for a three-course lunch and a glass of wine...by themselves? How do they decide when they're ready to let someone become a part of their very private lives? Laced with practical tips, engaging sidebars, and essential observations about French women and their ways, Entre Nous is a delightful book that will help you take the best of all pages from the French girl's book---the page that reveals how to really enjoy life.

In diesem unterhaltsamen Erfahrungsbericht lüftet sie die Geheimnisse der Erziehung à la française.

Neurotisch, leidenschaftlich, höfisch: Die Franzosen kennen fast so viele Spielarten der Liebe wie Käsesorten. Von den Minnesängern bis Dominique Strauss-Kahn: Immer wieder verblüffen sie den Rest der Welt. Wurde die Liebe in Frankreich erfunden? Marilyn Yalom, die große Romanistin und Feministin der ersten Stunde, geht dieser unterhaltsamen Frage anhand berühmter Meisterwerke der Literatur nach – offenherzig, fundiert und mit viel Humor. Nicht umsonst sind Wörter wie Rendezvous, Tête-à-Tête, Ménage-à-trois, Amour fou überall auf der Welt ein Begriff. Von der raffiniert-bösartigen Erotik der Gefährlichen Liebschaften bis zur berechnenden Sinnlichkeit einer Madame Bovary, von der offenen Ehe zwischen Sartre und Beauvoir bis zum exotischen Liebhaber der Marguerite Duras – am Ende steht immer die uralte Frage: Was macht die Liebeaus? Trieb oder Gefühl? Seele oder Intellekt? Für Kenner der Literatur ist dieses Buch ein Fest, bei dem man alte Freunde unter neuen Vorzeichen wiedertrifft. Alle anderen werden große Lust aufs Lesen bekommen.

The French Revolution created a new cultural world that freed women from the constraints of corporate privilege, aristocratic salons, and patriarchal censorship, even though it failed to grant them legal equality. Women burst into print in unprecedented numbers and became active participants in the great political, ethical, and aesthetic debates that gave birth to our understanding of the individual as a self-creating, self-determining agent. Carla Hesse tells this story, delivering a capacious history of how French women have used writing to create themselves as modern individuals. Beginning with the marketplace fishwives and salon hostesses whose eloquence shaped French culture low and high and leading us through the accomplishments of Simone de Beauvoir, Hesse shows what it meant to make an independent intellectual life as a woman in France. She offers exquisitely constructed portraits of the work and mental lives of many fascinating women--including both well-known novelists and now-obscure pamphleteers--who put pen to paper during and after the Revolution. We learn how they negotiated control over their work and authorial identity--whether choosing pseudonyms like Georges Sand or forsaking profits to sign their own names. We encounter the extraordinary Louise de Kéralio-Robert, a critically admired historian who re-created herself as a revolutionary novelist. We meet aristocratic women whose literary criticism subjected them to slander as well as writers whose rhetoric cost them not only reputation but marriage, citizenship, and even their heads. Crucially, their stories reveal how the unequal terms on which women entered the modern era shaped how they wrote and thought. Though women writers and thinkers championed the full range of political and social positions--from royalist to Jacobin, from ultraconservative to fully feminist--they shared common moral perspectives and representational strategies. Unlike the Enlightenment of their male peers, theirs was more skeptical than idealist, more situationalist than universalist. And this alternative project lies at the very heart of modern French letters.
