“Mademoiselle Renoir à Paris”
By the time Patricia Taylor Wells arrived in Paris to study at the Sorbonne during the summer of 1968, the political unrest in May that almost collapsed the French government had been subdued, at least temporarily. The author takes the reader on a tour of Paris during that summer of unrest and recounts how she adjusted to living in a foreign country for the first time; from staying in a dorm run by nuns to getting caught in the student-led resurgence on Bastille Day.
