  • Rosie Ipecac: The Paris Years on Oct. 09, 2012
    (no rating)
    This is a funny and fabulous book that has already attracted ecstatic reviews from readers of the print edition published through McNally Jackson bookstore in NY. This is a Paris and voice you've never seen or heard before. Here are a few of those reviews: "What a pleasure it has been to take that wonderful tour of Paris in the hands of such a charming, funny, clever and tender guide. Roseola made me laugh with her as she watched pigeons, bowled, went to the Laundromat, the dry cleaner, or to the butcher shop—“forget the stuffing.” Florida reader "I think Rosie is quite brilliant. I loved the characters, from Rosie and Johnny down to the butcher and the painter with his lunch and the woman who kept the Lav lively and Hannah et al. Ditto for your depictions of Paris that make me feel as though I've spent a year and a half living there.... And for your writing, which is always fresh & never clichéd." Oregon reader "I laughed out loud at her humor (rare for me)--you've accomplished perfect comic timing in your sentences! I felt introduced to a beautiful, rare, honest intelligent soul finding her way through the tricky territory of being human on earth. The physical book pleases me too, such nice paper pages to turn." San Francisco reader "Will there be a sequel? The closest relative to this novel that I've ever read is Nora Ephron's Heartburn, but Rosie is much, much better! I can see a film of this, and I hope Tom Hanks options it!" Virginia reader
