Elaine Sciolino on La Seduction

France is seductive in its elegance, its beauty, its sensual pleasures, and its joie de vivre. Elaine Sciolino, the longtime Paris bureau chief of the New York Times, explains that seduction is not just a game to the French: it is the key to understanding that country. In La Seduction, Sciolino demystifies the French way of life through a personal narrative that carries us from the neighborhood shops of Paris to the halls of government to the agricultural heartland.
