A Paris Affair by Tatiana de Rosnay

A Paris Affair by Tatiana de Rosnay

Does a fruit taste its sweetest when it is forbidden? Is that which is prohibited always the most pleasurable? In this passionate and perceptive collection, Tatiana de Rosnay paints a portrait of the most forbidden of loves, in many different shades—sometimes tragic, sometimes humorous, sometimes heartfelt, always with a dry wit and unflinching authenticity. A PARIS AFFAIR is an enjoyable “undressing” of intimate delights, where laughter mingles with compassion and the heartbeats of illicit desire.St. Martin’s Press,2015

Book Review:

Paris-France
Eiffel Tower in Spring

A Paris Affair is a collection of short essays about married Parisians, in their early thirty, who have at least two small children and have or are a cheating spouse.   The essays do not go into the reasoning for the affairs, nor follow the couples in the aftermath of their discovery.

The theme or overall lesson of the novel seems to be is, “Hey your husband will cheat, eh, what can you do?”.  The stories are well written and each have an interesting storytelling style, but with no real conclusion or point, they left me with a feeling of hopelessness towards romance and marriage. Borrow it
