Read full description of the books:
Part travel narrative and part lifestyle guide, Inspired by Paris: Why Borrowing from the French Is Better Than Being French is a must-read for anyone who’s ever dreamed about traveling to or living in France.
Author Jordan Phillips is a bona fide Francophile. Just show her a wedge of oozy French cheese or a slightly dilapidated Mansard roof, and she’ll swoon every time. Before moving to New York, Phillips lived in Paris, and she still travels to her apartment there frequently. But through these experiences, she learned that—as in so many things in life—fantasy is often better than reality.
Filled with historical tidbits, motivational nuggets, and honest insight, chapters such as “La Vie Est Belle,” “The Paris Syndrome,” and “Jacques-in-the-Box” reveal the truth of what it’s really like to live in the most beautiful city in the world.
Whether you’re headed to Paris next week or never make it there at all, this chatty and information-packed book will introduce you to the real City of Light—beyond the fantasy of the Instagram version.

Read information about the authorLong before visiting Paris for the first time, Jordan Phillips dreamed of La Belle Époque and absinthe-fueled writers pulling all-nighters. She wanted to jump into one of those Toulouse-Lautrec posters filled with vibrant cancan girls dancing and people kissing. Now, even after living in Paris part time since 2010, she still views the city nostalgically and a bit romantically, as if looking through sepia-toned glasses.
The rest of her headspace is taken up by questions of what the future will hold, having grown up in Northern California during the ascent of Steve Jobs and Apple, watching Star Trek: The Next Generation and reruns of The Jetsons. Writing a utopian-fiction book allowed her to combine her passion for anything pertaining to technology and the future with her obsession with Paris’s illustrious past.
In the present, Jordan enjoys being a flâneuse of the world and studying popular culture. When not traveling, she can usually be found at home with her husband and daughter in New York City or lingering at a café on the Rive Gauche near her apartment off Place St-Sulpice.
Jordan holds a master’s degree in fashion marketing and management from the École Supérieure des Arts et Techniques de la Mode (ESMOD) in Paris, and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly). She is also the author of Inspired by Paris: Why Borrowing from the French Is Better Than Being French.
