Reviews

'By turns madcap and heart-breaking, Paris or Die is a witty and wise reflection on the power of cities to help us become ourselves. I devoured it and I can't wait to read more from my new favorite writer.' - Lauren Elkin, author of Flaneuse: Women Walk the City
'A vivid memoir of damage, grace and healing which manages to be funny, irreverent and moving all at once.' - Luke Davies, author of Candy, Totem, script writer of Lion
'Jayne Tuttle's writing is a delicious delight.' - Christos Tsiolkas, author of Damascus, Merciless Gods, Barracuda, The Slap
'An electric rollercoaster ride through the streets of Paris, this is also a moving memoir of love, exploration and loss - at times utterly joyful, at times gut-wrenching and always fierce and beautifully written.' - Jemma Birrell, artistic director of Sydney Writers' Festival, 2012-2016
'I was entranced from start to finish. A tantalising tour through the life of a young, spontaneous, in love, in lust, foreigner whose inimitable joie de vivre opens her to a Paris that yields its local charms, its particular customs and its unexpected dangers ...' - Martine Murray, author of The Last Summer of Ada Bloom, How to Make a Bird
'A riveting, moving, funny and at times shocking memoir about a young Australian woman whose dream journey to the city of light turns into a nightmare. I loved it.' - Jennifer Higgie, writer and editor Frieze magazine
'Moving, raw and more than a little bit sexy, I practically inhaled this book about a woman determined to grab on to art, love and life with everything she's got in the world's most romantic city.' - Rachel Power, author of The Divided Heart: Art and Motherhood
'Joyous, sexy and compelling ... a wonderful read.' - Paddy O'Reilly, author of Peripheral Vision, The Wonders
'
Tuttle, a writer, actor and charismatically charming first-time author, takes us on quite a journey. Her writing is pitch-perfect and pacy - very, very funny at times, and raw and affecting at others.' - Linda Jaivin, The Saturday Paper
