An Apartment in Paris, by Caroline Blane
The secret goal was to buy a tiny apartment in Paris. The author, her husband and their 5 year old son spent 6 months over the winter of 1989-1990 in the city of lights. On sabbatical from their university, while conducting research projects, they managed to locate, buy and furnish a tiny pied-a-terre. Their dream came true, however, there were intermittent nightmares as they tangled with the French way of doing business, the legalities of purchasing an apartment in a foreign country, and the adventures locating furnishings and decorating their tiny hideaway. This true story has all the ups and downs that so often make real life more entertaining than fiction.
