How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are, Anne Brest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mas
6 Anne Brest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mas How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are
Ebury Press 233959 Australia 2014 0857982508 / 9780857982506 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine How To Be Parisian brilliantly deconstructs the French woman's views on culture, fashion and attitude. Bohemian free-thinkers and iconoclasts, Anne Berest, Caroline De Maigret, Audrey Diwan and Sophie Mas cut through the myths in this gorgeous, witty guide to Parisienne savoir faire. These modern Parisiennes say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed, and all for art, politics and culture, making everything look easy, and going against the grain. They will take you on a first date, to a party and through a hangover. They will tell you how to be mysterious and sensual, make your boyfriend jealous, the right way to approach weddings and the gym, and they will share their address book in Paris for where to go at the end of the night, for a birthday, for a smart date, for vintage finds and much more. Full of wit and self-deprecating humour, How To Be Parisian explains those confusing subjects of clothes, makeup, men, culture and lifestyle as only a true Parisienne can. 253 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Non Fiction; Miscellaneous; ISBN/EAN: 9780857982506. Inventory No: 233959.

Making the Rounds with Oscar : The Inspirational Story of a Doctor, His Patients and a Very Special Cat, David Dosa
15 David Dosa Making the Rounds with Oscar : The Inspirational Story of a Doctor, His Patients and a Very Special Cat
Headline 233885 London 2010 0755318129 / 9780755318124 Trade Paperback Good Condition No Dust Jacket Oscar the cat lives on the third floor of a nursing home in Rhode Island, USA. At first glance Oscar doesn't seem special. He's plain to look at. He's aloof. Like most cats, he's partial to treats and catnip. But in the summer of 2007 Oscar made headlines around the world. So what's so unusual about Oscar? He knows when the hospice patients are going to die. Dr Dosa's job is to respond to people's medical needs, treat them for their ailments and communicate with their families. Oscar takes care of the rest. He is a steady companion as patients descend into death. He is with them when they die. And, because of him, they don't die alone. Can a cat really predict death? Is he smelling something or responding to behavioural clues? Is he helping guide souls to heaven? Oscar's warm and profound story - of his uncanny ability to see death coming, of his steadfast and non-judgmental commitment to sit with patients as they die, of his quiet compassion - is a metaphor for what is important at the end of life. 248 pages. Light browning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Non Fiction; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN/EAN: 9780755318124. Inventory No: 233885. Paperback
