Ehh, a little too breezy. Some people have real problems! Enjoyed the dig at hollywood's "exploitation schedule".

Contemporary author sighting: "I remember that during my first weeks as a newly engaged, new resident of Paris, I received from a malevolent Irishman a copy of Nancy Mitford's [b:The Blessing|9464990|The Blessing|Nancy Mitford|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1312820937s/9464990.jpg|148207], which concerns an Englishwoman who marries a Frenchman and discovers that, although he obliges her beautifully in the evenings, he spends his afternoons with his mistress. The book shook me....With Pierre that evening I did a little careful checking. The family fortune had been thoroughly wiped out in 1946. He must have been bewildered by my expression of pure delight. He was puzzled but pleased when I myself took The Blessing and threw it out of the window."… (mais)

So, it’s definitely been awhile since I’ve actually written a review for a book. With school in session and commuting to college, I have practically no drive to write for class, let alone for pleasure.

Alas, the book I chose for this was Every Frenchman has One by Olivia de Havilland. I’ll be perfectly honest, I had a hard time getting interested in the book as I was reading it. It’s not that it’s poorly written. In fact Havilland’s narrative is witty and charming enough, but the context is extremely irrelevant. I’m not familiar with who she is, and the time this has taken place, considered it was written for the contemporary audience. Anyone who takes interest in older Hollywood socialites and Gone With the Wind should enjoy this little book.… (mais)

An extremely entertaining book written by one of Hollywood's most treasured stars. This book was reprinted in 2016 in honor of the author's one hundredth birthday, and it includes a short interview at the end of the book. The book itself is a lighthearted, fast paced read. Miss de Havilland gives you the scoop on what it was like to move to France without knowing the language, laws, or customs. It's told with great wit and it was a pleasure to read.
