About this title

Synopsis:

Living in Paris is far different than visiting Paris. Paris has to grow on you and into you - it is something you feel. The book describes the tentative reactions of someone who lands at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport with a one-way ticket and must confront a new job, a new language, a new home, a strange environment, and no familiar faces. The author describes his reactions and the eventual warmth he develops toward those quintessential Parisians, the local people in the "Quartier."

Another important facet of his life is also undergoing a radical change for he is soon to be joined by his wife-to-be, Helga. While Eric is discovering the sometimes thorny thickets of international relations with member countries of the IEA, Helga is busy learning the language and establishing a rapport with the local tradesfolk.

Meanwhile, Eric finds the political landscape shifting under his feet and has to adapt to the realities of changing global energy policies driven in large part by the ascent to the US Presidency of Ronald Reagan. Come along with Helga and Eric as they learn to understand and love the people and the places of Paris and France.
