Wonderful reviews of our January publications


What a wonderful start to the New Year with three new French lifestyle titles published this January, all receiving great reviews from the press!

Older But Better, But Older by Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas and Amour by Stefania Rousselle both featured centre-stage in Marie-Claire Chappet’s article in The Telegraph this weekend as she ruminated on the endless British fascination with signature French attitudes, whether towards ageing or love.

Marie Robert, author of Keep It Together: philosophy for everyday emergencies (translated from the original French by Meg Richardson), wrote a piece for The Telegraph on ‘How to beat the January blues like a philosopher’.  Her advice, administered with a wink and an encouraging smile, shows how we can apply the ideas of classical thinkers to the problems we face today, from abandoning a New Year’s resolution to hit the gym to dealing with a break-up so cruelly close to Valentine’s Day.

The allure of the Parisian approach to matters- be it growing older, learning about love, or approaching the problems of quotidian life- is as compelling as ever, and these titles offer teachings on what we can learn and adopt from the French as we move into the New Year.
