Say Chic to say it in french

Say Chic, a collection of French words we can't live without
In Say Chic, Françoise Blanchard and Jeremy Leven collect more than seventy familiar French words and phrases that have become a permanent part of the English vocabulary. The authors offer full-bodied descriptions of words' origins and each word's adoption into English usage that include etymology, history, culture, and pithy observations.
Combining the sensibilities of an American author and a French author, the book has a droll, often deadpan tone, and no small amount of panache. A mine of intriguing words and the stories behind them, that will find his raison d'être on any bookshelf.
With the delightful illustrations of Pouch.

Rights to publish this book in The United States were bought by Simon & Schuster.
