From Paris's famous opera house to its gossip-rich salons,KISS ME AGAIN, PARIS celebrates youth at the end of the 1970s, when women werein fashion and every woman, gay or straight, fell in love with women.
Author Renate Stendhal ekes out a living as a culturaljournalist in Europe's most cultured city. She walks Paris at night dressed asa boy, has friends and lovers among artists and writers, and falls under the spellof the mercurial actress Claude, who has all of Paris talking. At the sametime, she finds herself in the crosshairs of an alluring stranger who seems toappear everywhere and nowhere at once. There are mysteries with and withoutclues. Is sexual obsession a way to avoid the risk of love?
Filled with sensuality, style, romance, and suspense,Stendhal plays with the concept of memoir as a genre and transports the readerto another time and place. No matter what age you are, you'll be young and inlove again when you reach the last page.
