About La Séduction
In a new preface written for the paperback edition, Sciolino shows how the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case has thrust France into a searching debate about the future of seduction and the culture of pleasure, which cuts to the heart of France's national identity. In this as in every other aspect of French life, Elaine Sciolino proves herself to be a charming, insightful, and--yes--seductive guide.
About The Only Street in Paris
About The Seine: The River that Made Paris
Full of lively anecdotes and historical detail, The Seine is a compelling story of how a river brings a city to life. The book and its namesake both enchant and remind us of how necessary this river is to Paris and to those other towns and cities along the river. The story will answer why filmmakers and photographers, painters and writers have made it their own.
