Staff Reviews


I absolutely adore Lucy Knisley's artwork as well as her hysterical commentary. As her and her mother both face life changing milestones (graduating college, turning 50), they spend a month together sightseeing in Paris. "French Milk" is Lucy's travel journal of the trip. Funny, heartwarming and relatable. — Jess Elder

Description


Through delightful drawings, photographs, and musings, twenty-three-year-old Lucy Knisley documents a six-week trip she and her mother took to Paris when each was facing a milestone birthday. With a quirky flat in the fifth arrondissement as their home base, they set out to explore all the city has to offer, watching fireworks over the Eiffel Tower on New Year's Eve, visiting Oscar Wilde's grave, loafing at cafés, and, of course, drinking delicious French milk. What results is not only a sweet and savory journey through the City of Light but a moving, personal look at a mother-daughter relationship.
