Heaven Near the Louvre

On Happiness in Paris

Once one has been a woman in Paris, one cannot be it anywhere else. Montesquieu

Rive Droite, the 1st Arrondissement, one of the most venerable and most elegant neighbourhoods right in the heart of Paris, between Place Vendôme and the Tuileries Gardens. In 38 brief chapters, Julie Mebes shows us her very own Paris. She takes us to her favourite tea room and leads us through the lesser-known side streets and large boulevards. She makes us marvel at tame goats in the Tuileries and at German tourists taking snapshots in the Louvre. We are queuing in her supermarket and are invited to a writers’ seminar. We join her at her writing desk at the window in her small apartment and get to know her neighbours. Julie Mebes depicts how Parisians succeed in mastering everyday life with great elegance – and how easy life in Paris is for a woman.

  • A book about the joys and charms of Parisian life

  • Makes one want to leave for Paris. Tout de suite. For good.
