This is Life
In Paris, art student Aurélie Renard throws a stone and sets in motion a chain of events that will turn her life upside down.
Suddenly finding herself in sole charge of a stranger's baby, and with no idea how babies work, it's only thanks to the help of her adoring professor and her gun-toting heartbreaker of a best friend that Aurélie Renard is able to navigate her way through the most extraordinary and calamitous seven days of her life.
Meanwhile, in a Pigalle cinema, a naked man is doing his best to show the people of Paris, Aurélie among them, what it means to be alive . . .
'The funniest, most romantic book Dan Rhodes has ever written. It's full of zest and joy and art and Paris. Only to be read if you enjoy happiness.', Jenny Colgan
'Rhodes is that real, rare thing - a natural storyteller', Sunday Times 'My favourite writer who isn't dead.', Stewart Lee
'Dan Rhodes is a true original, with a fresh, funny, quirky style that seems to owe nothing to other writers and everything to his own powers of invention', Hilary Mantel
'Wonderfully unpredictable. Draws you in from the first page', Alan Carr
