Editorial Reviews

Review

“Lighthearted... with healthy dashes of satire, wit, and humor…an engaging, entertaining, and delicious divertissement.”
Kirkus Reviews

“David captures the torturous travails of apartment renovation in the City of Light with humor and acumen. 'Pas de problème,' he's told time and again as the renovation derails. He is as alert to details of parquet and working with a notaire as he is with recipes for tarte tatin and quiche, both included here. This memoir brings fans of David even closer to the happy life he's built for himself in Paris.”
—Jacques Pépin, chef, author, and PBS-TV cooking show host 

“This book is so entertaining and so deliciously told that I could just gobble it all up in one sitting. As always, David Lebovitz managed to draw me into his scrumptious universe with a million poignant observations and countless of laugh-out-loud moments.”
Yotam Ottolenghi, author of Jerusalem, Plenty, and Sweet  

“Written in lovely, lucid prose, the story of David's endeavor to make a home for himself in Paris is unflinchingly honest, often poignant, and frequently hilarious. As he astutely perceives, the great gift of his odyssey is ultimately the wry and very Gallic world view he acquires through the eye-popping challenges of buying and renovating a Paris apartment, and it's this hard-won treasure, along with a shy but steely self-knowledge, that makes L'Appart such a memorably winning read.”
Alexander Lobrano, author of Hungry for Paris and Hungry for France

“David is an incredible storyteller, both in and out of the kitchen. I thoroughly enjoy the authenticity of life in a different country, where every day requires an adjustment and every event is a curve ball. But that's where the joy is: embracing life with a wonderful attitude, seeking exploration and novelty.”
—Gabriele Corcos, chef and author of the New York Times bestseller Extra Virgin
