Coup de Vieux

Grownups CoverI recently discovered the bilingual magazine, France-Amérique. It’s perfect for someone like me who’s reading French at an intermediate level.  The trendy magazine consists of articles about pop-culture and politics, each article or interview written en français on the left side of the page with an English translation on the right half of the page.

The March 2019 issue contains an interview with Pamela Druckerman, the expatriate who wrote the bestseller Bringing up Bébé. Druckerman recently released another light-hearted and fun book, There Are No Grownups.  Within it she describes her life in Paris as she encounters mid-life and explores all that this social construct entails.  It’s a great beach read and even better if you reading it while in the midst of les années quarantes like I am!
