French Milk

In December 2006, Lucy Knisley and her mother rented an apartment in Paris. During the month they lived there, exploring the city's sights, sounds, art, and food, Knisley kept a journal detailing her days.  Her black-and-white drawings are evocative and, by turns, funny and introspective.

Lucy Knisley is the author and illustrator of French Milk, Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, An Age of License: A Travelogue, Displacement: A Travelogue, and Something New: Tales of a Makeshift Bride.  She lives in Chicago.
