True Pleasures Lucinda Holdforth

"Living and loving in Paris - what more could a woman want? This enchanting memoir recalls the highs and lows of women through the ages - a splendid read." - Margaret Whitlam "This is a treasure hunt of a book. Lucinda Holdforth's passionate portraits draw us deep into the lives of these supremely feminine characters, and along the way, reacquaints even the most jaded Parisian with this supremely feminine city. For readers, True Pleasures is a an absorbing literary voyage — for Lucinda, we suspect, it’s also one of self-discovery." - Charla Carter - Paris Editor, Vogue Australia
