The story describes her struggle to survive in a foreign city with no work papers and no money. During her time there she has a variety of odd jobs including artist model, nanny, and poet's helper. At one point she even ends up befriending a thief and learning how to steal what she needs.
I liked reading about an account of living in Paris that looked beyond the romantic setting at the hard cold realities of living in the city. I loved reading about the eclectic cast of characters she meets during her stay.
The writing is straight forward and beautiful. I didn't feel compelled to skim any of it. That's something I'm guilty of doing when I think an author is getting a bit too carried away explaining the details.
I'd definitely recommend this book.
"Black Girl in Paris" is a beautiful novel by a gifted writer with a unique talent. Youngblood is able to tell a story, convey her message and leave room for the reader's own experience. All of which make for a truly engaging read and an appreciation for a writer that does not consider her audience too inept to "get it".
