Diane Johnson, critically acclaimed author of Le Mariage, has twice been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize during her distinguished career. The best-selling Le Divorce, a witty and insightful look at clashing cultures, was a finalist for the National Book Award.

Isabel Walker has flown to Paris to offer moral support for Roxy, her pregnant stepsister. Roxy's husband, Charles-Henri, favorite son of a powerful French family, is having a love affair. Divorce seems imminent. When her entire family arrives to help with legal issues, Isabel feels intense pressure to keep everything from falling apart. And in the background, the unstable husband of Charles-Henri's lover lurks menacingly.

A resident of both the United States and France, Diane Johnson infuses this shrewd comedy of manners with keen observations about cultural differences. Narrator Suzanne Toren creates a stylish, smart, and sexy Isabel who strives to stay grounded amidst everything Paris has to offer. Download and start listening now!

    " The book is better than the movie. The main character's main expression of feminism is to sleep with a much older French man, but somehow you go there with her. Well, not all the way. It is however the only work of fiction I have ever encountered that actually champions USA american culture with respect to the French - very cheeky. But the story is interesting, well-told, and explores the changing face of relationship and family. And it was funny. I'm a sucker for funny. "

    " Frivolous - no substance. "

    " Those writing that Le Divorce is not chick lit, as it is sometimes mistakenly defined, are correct. However, that doesn't automatically make this book a good one. I found Isabel to be a terrible choice for narrator/protagonist, one with whom I could not get along. And the whole ordeal with the painting was incredibly boring. Had I been reading this and not listening to the audiobook, I would've dumped it after the first few chapters. Also, a note on the merits of the audiobook: while Suzanne Toren is a competent reader, she was not a convincing Isabel. "

    " This book takes a whimsical look at Paris and the mischief it causes for two sisters. A great book for a rainy weekend! "
