Bonnie Smith weaves biography and oral history into this vivid life of Madame Lucie, concierge of a Paris hotel and witness of nearly a century of French history. Both Smith and Madame Lucie are brilliant, flexible storytellers who present life as a continual flux between the poles of tradition and scandal, politics and private life, truth and memory. A kaleidescopic view of twentieth-century France, sketched by a so-called ordinary French woman with a great deal of sense and courage to survive hard timers, who can teach us a few lessons on French life and manners in our century that we cannot find in history books.
