Présentation de l'éditeur

Wine, romance, and French bureaucracy--the ups and downs of an American's life in Paris. This laugh-out-loud memoir is almost too funny to be true!

Drinking too much bubbly. Meeting sappy Frenchmen who have girlfriends or are creeps or both. Encountering problème after problème with French bureaucracy. When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to indulge in wine, stuff her face with croissants, and maybe fall in love.

In her first book, this cheeky storyteller and semi-professional drinker recounts the highs and lows of her life in Paris. Full of sass, shamefully honest admissions, and situations that seem too absurd to be true, you'll feel as if you're stumbling along the cobblestones with her.

Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break?


Read about Vicki's bumpy journey into motherhood in her #1 Amazon Best Seller, Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer.

Biographie de l'auteur

Amazon best-selling author Vicki Lesage proves daily that raising two French kids isn't as easy as the hype lets on. In her three minutes of spare time per week, she writes, sips bubbly, and prepares for the impending zombie apocalypse. She lives in Paris with her French husband, rambunctious son, and charming daughter, all of whom mercifully don't laugh when she says "au revoir." She penned two books, Confessions of a Paris Party Girl and Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer, in between diaper changes and wine refills. She writes about the ups and downs of life in the City of Light at VickiLesage.com.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Vicki is a young American full of dreams and ambition. She decides to move to Paris when she loses her job. Her adventures in the city of lights are hilarious and full of surprises. Her struggle with French men, love, work and bureaucracy made me laugh out loud, I could not pu it down before I was done with it !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect for all chick lit lovers...and anyone looking for a humorous well written mental escape :) 19 mars 2014
Par Sanda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Let me tell you a thing or three about my new friend Vicki (granted she knows nothing of this friendship but more about that later). The best way I can describe this book is that it was like reading a long, hilariously intimate email from a close friend. So what happens when a 20-something girl from St. Louis (MISSOURI!) with a basic knowledge of french and a great appetite for adventure decide to move to the city of love (and great English speaking bars apparently), Paris? Well first of all you get a glimpse into the everyday life of the french through the eyes of an outsider, a colorful cast of characters and loads of 'laugh out loud' moments (am I ever grateful that I read this book in the privacy of my own home).

One of my pet peeves when it comes to "chick-lit", lighter literature and such is the fact that just because the subject matter is lighter (often more humorous) that often means that the entire focus is on the plot (and even that often leaves a lot to be desired) and not on the writing style and/or quality of writing. You can't imagine my relief when right from the start it was obvious that won't be the case with this book. The fact that I didn't have to stumble over poorly composed sentences meant that I could give my full attention to all of Vicki's adventures and misadventures. Plus, in case I ever decide to move to Paris I will be armed with an impressive knowledge of french bureaucracy (paper, paper and more paper) and great tips on how to handle apartment hunting in the city.

By the time you finish reading this book you too will feel that a) there simply has to be a sequel to this book and b) that Vicki is just another one of your friends. In my case, part 'b' was helped along by Vicki's ("barely noticeable") OCD, (takes one to know one) germophobia, humour and perceptive way of viewing (and describing) people and situations. (well the fact that every once in a while she ends up having just a few too many drinks will have many 20 something relating and many 30 and 40 something reminiscing) Now there's nothing else for me to do but hope and wait for the sequel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Girl After My Own Parisian Life 3 avril 2014
Par Amy Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a former expat resident of Paris, I found it only too easy to relate to many of the tales Lesage describes. Arriving at her first apartment, totally unsure of where she was actually supposed to be, and speaking too little French to properly ask (been there, done that). The difference between “original intended time” to spend in Paris (hers being 3 months, mine being 4) and the “actual time”(mine begin 3 years, hers 9, and counting). Finally making friends with other expats, and forming that special bond because you all face the same struggles finding your sense of belonging, and opening a damn bank account. The list of similarities go on and on. I felt like I was re-enacting my life and experiences in Paris through her words. I know the fondue place she is so fond of, and was familiar with her go-to bar, The Long Hop (mine was The Guillotine, pretty much right around the corner actually). It’s actually quite amazing our lives never overlapped there. Or maybe they did, and we just didn’t realize it.

While this book, as the name suggests, focuses solely on life in Paris, I think it recounts situations every expat faces. The feeling of being brand new, knowing no one, having to carve your own path in a culture completely unfamiliar. Lesage dealt with her fair share of struggles. She faced down the Big Bad Bureaucracy. And, in the end, she won. Hats off to you, girl.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Super funny and spot-on 13 mars 2014
Par Christine Schwartz Hartley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I am biased: I know Vicki -- she was the first babysitter I hired when my husband and I moved to Paris with our two sons, 3 and a half and 5 months at the time. She was a great babysitter, and great fun for us parents to be around and chat with, so I was prepared to love this book (and laughed and laughed at the depiction of my family!). But I must say I was blown away by how good and funny this book is! Vicky's observations relating to life in Paris (including the insane bureaucracy) are right on and delivered with such wit and humor; her honesty about her daily struggles, her friendships, her love life and her epic nights (and early mornings) are engaging and refreshing -- it's a really wonderful read. Go Vicki!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely loved the story of her journey in Paris 22 mars 2014
Par Lisa Prichard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I do not have time to read much and I was shocked that I could not put this book down. I think I read it in three nights which is incredible for me. I loved how she came to Paris by herself (unbelievable), met her love, had a family, etc. etc. Vicki adds a humor to her journey that keeps you entertained and curious what is next. I would highly recommend it and I would like a follow up version after she had Leonardo.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mr. Controversy Speaks on Confessions of a Paris Party Girl 10 novembre 2014
Par Andrew Boyd - Publié sur Amazon.com

*Full review can be found here: http://therevboard.com/2014/11/10/mr-controversy-speaks-on-confessions-of-a-paris-party-girl/ *

Vicki Lesage’s “Confessions of a Paris Party Girl” has an autobiographical feel as a young Vicki (VeeKee as she is called by a few characters in the story) chooses to leave her unceremoniously relieved from her IT job’s duties as well as take a car everywhere life in St. Louis, Missouri to venture abroad into the lavish and glamorous living of Paris, France as a freelance web designer.

Granted, to be in (let alone LIVE IN) a new land, whether stateside or abroad, is trying as well as taxing. Vicki takes everything is stride, and makes the best of her day-to-day situations. From trying to find the key holder to her first dwelling, breaking 20 euros at the store (while getting guff from shopkeepers), SERIOUS bottles of wine, homesickness, loads of reflection of many fun times with her friends and family, TONS AND TONS of handsy, ignorant, quasi-disrespectful, and helpful Frenchmen and Frenchwomen, all the way down to the locals STRONGLY believing that St. Louis in Missouri) is ACTUALLY (in THEIR minds) located in “Louisiane,” dealing with French authorities while renewing her Visa, and Love.

Ahhh, Paris: you fickle whore…

It is a great read that got me from the jump. When I read the first few pages (namely the boarding call for Paris), I had a strong feeling that this read was going to be something special.

I am glad that I was right (for once).

The description of the Parisian life is overall solid, sound, and good. It has a feel of a blogger which helped greatly in my comfort level of reading (bloggers love bloggers for the most part). There are humorous recollections, sadness, and sarcasm which give the book depth and character.

The ONLY complaint that I have with this read is a not too bad one actually. At the same time, a little lesson for everyone:

While reading the book, I had to put it down a few times to look up and translate certain French words and phrases that did not have a translation already included. Citing that I speak Spanish personally, I would make sure that IF I use a Spanish term, I would include its translation in parenthesis so the language barrier remains intact.

Mrs. Vicki Lesage DEFINITELY has something special here, and I look forward to reading MUCH MORE from this young lady!

Keep It Up!
