French Milk

Charmant." -People Magazine

"A keenly observed letter back home... the pleasure Knisley takes in food and company is infectious." -Salon

"Whimsical... Knisley takes us on an illustrated adventure set in Paris that had us craving cafe au lait and smoldering Frenchmen." -Glamour Magazine

Through delightful drawings, photographs and musings, twenty-three-year-old Lucy Knisley documents a six-week trip she and her mother took to Paris when each was facing a milestone birthday. With a quirky flat in the fifth arrondissement as their home base, they set out to explore all the city has to offer, watching fireworks over the Eiffel Tower on New Year's Eve, visiting Oscar Wilde's grave, loafing at cafes, and, of course, drinking delicious French milk. What results is not only a sweet and savory journey through the City of Light, but a moving, personal look at a mother-daughter relationship.
