When Suzy Gershman is suddenly widowed, she pulls up stakes and moves to the City of Light. Part travelogue, part memoir, Gershman uses the skills she developed while writing her hugely successful Born to Shop travel books. She is strikingly honest as a woman who feels lost after her husband’s death, and decides to start over somewhere new. I have read and re-read this book several times in the last decade, and loved it each time. Covering everything from grief, language barriers, dealing with foreign bureaucracies to trying to buy a mattress in Paris, C’est la Vie is a touching account of a woman’s journey through widowhood, far from home.
