Afterwards, if it's warm, I'll make my way through Hemingway and Fitzgerald's old neighbourhood near the St. Suplice to the Jardin de Luxembourg and its parterres of pistachio green chairs for a stroll among the statues. Or join other flavour-obsessed habitues at the atmospheric organic market on leafy Boulevard Raspail, where string bags are filled with dewy pears, tiny limes, bundles of fresh basil and thyme, heirloom tomatoes, sleek leeks and elegant asparagus stalks so chic they could be Kate Moss of the potager model agency.

After an ill-fated affair with the Queen Mother's equerry, a young London-based Australian journalist, Janelle McCulloch, runs away to Paris to restore her pride. The city leaves an indelible print and she returns many years later to live there for a year. La Vie Parisienne: Looking for Love - and the Perfect Lingerie captures Janelle's experiences that year, immersed in life in Paris. An acute observer of Parisienne style in action, Janelle set off to re-invent herself and in the process, discovered she was very comfortable in her own skin. Janelle's account is warm, honest, funny and at times, poignant and tender.
