French Lessons by Ellen Sussman.. This French kiss will send you looking for your passport, since Sussman has a vibrant, vital touch balanced by her instinct for the mot juste. Here, the language is love.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"As inviting as the smell of freshly baked croissants wafting from a Parisian café, this is a novel to savor."

Ann Packer

"Sussman makes the romance of Paris come alive without lapsing into cliche. The narrative feels as light as a glass of rose at an outdoor cafe, but its insights carry the richness of a Burgundy. Like a day spent with a lover, French Lessons leaves a sense of satisfaction along with a wish that it wouldn't end."

People Magazine

Author bio: Ellen was born in Trenton, NJ and has lived in Boston, Philly, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Paris and Northern California. She has worked lots of jobs including tennis instructor, restaurant manager, and college teacher but through all the transmutations of her life she has been writing, since the age of six, stubbornly, persistently, with great cockiness and wild insecurity, through praise and piles of rejection letters. She has given up her writing career many times, but only for a day or two, and her family has now learned to ignore her new career choices. More information can be found here:
