Paris Or Die


Jayne Tuttle is a young Australian in Paris. Living in a converted 17th-century monastery and studying at a prestigious theatre school, she is trying to escape the pain of a loss back home by immersing herself in the city’s extremes. The beauty. The grime. The madness and humour, the sights and songs, the streets turning white overnight. A friendship with a flamboyant artist. A relationship with a Frenchman too beautiful to be real. Nothing in her Paris seems to follow rhyme or reason not her heart, her thoughts or the course of events. And least of all the bizarre accident that nearly ends it all when she narrowly avoid decapitation in a lift shaft. Jayne Tuttle’s memoir vibrates with a rawness and immediacy that lifts you off the page and into a Paris beyond the postcards.
