Quote, The Stendhal Summer by Laurie Levy

“[George is] my late husband, except I haven’t killed him yet. I made the mistake of telling [my mother] about my Stendhal dream…and she said if I’d had a better marriage, I wouldn’t be dreaming about dead Frenchmen.”

Quote, The Stendhal Summer by Laurie Levy

Did all Europeans drive badly?… The Roman rule was simple: You try to cross the street and I’ll try to turn the corner at the same time, and we’ll see who makes it. Paris…drivers practiced a more subtle Russian roulette, with the Gallic shrug if you got away.
