I think Ms. Kunz has done an excellent job painting a picture of lifestyles and attitudes of the *typical* French woman, although how anyone from anywhere else is going to incorporate this into her own image and self concept seems rather doubtful to me. I don't think a leopard can change her spots to such an extent. I will admit to thinking a lot of these styles are enviable....living on a shoestring for example and decorating with such personal aplomb, or cultivating cerebral excellence. The first and last chapters introduce and sum up the naughtiness some might expect. Whether you'll like that or not, I don't know.
I'm giving four stars because of the thoroughness in presenting and detailing French female sociology, a job well done.
Actually, I wish I'd had this book forty years ago. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0927015250, Paperback)

"Fatale: How French Women Do It" peeks at the mysterious ways Frenchwomen manage to appear sexy, smart and recklessly chic. Clues unmask the delicious deceptions plotted by Frenchwomen while suggesting how contemporary women can flirt like a coquette, charm like a courtesan and emit sensuality with cool confidence by merely adjusting one's attitude and one's garter belt. For those who savor French finesse and style, this book serves up lessons and advice to feast upon from historical and present-day femme fatales.
