    I was enjoying the first section of this book, told from Jayne s POV Once it switched to Laurent s POV, I enjoyed it less and when it switched back to Jayne s POV for the end, I was completely disinterested I was also left wanting with the ending, which I felt did not resolve the story.

    A heart s coming of age, and what I mean by that is the novel has Jayne learning all of love s dimensions while struggling with what she wants The appeal of a worldly European man offering to give her the chance to blossom in Paris seems to be a no brainer particularly for an artist Laurent is the man offering to turn her into a sensualist, not just with art but with food and the ways of the Parisians.

    In the course of her relatively short career, Christine Sneed has shown remarkable range Her first collection of short stories, the deliciously named Portraits of a Few of the People I ve Made Cry, she delineated sexual politics and identity with sharp, knowing insights The book deservedly won the Grace Paley award for short fiction and was longlisted for the Frank O Connor International Short Story Award

    This is a lush, evocative novel about an artist and the people she loves, the decisions she has to make as she embarks upon the career she always dreamed about, and Paris, which becomes a character in its own right A romance, drama, and comedy all at once, Paris, He Said features Sneed s typically elegant writing and rich characters, especially Jayne.

    In this compelling exploration of love and desire and the murky region in between, Christine Sneed gives us a glimpse of the Paris art world through the eyes of two flawed but likable characters, Jayne Marks and her older lover, Laurent In many ways it s a novel of rumination and self analysis, rather than action, and it never shies away from its characterssordid motivations Jayne accepts an invitation to live with Laurent in Par
