We'll Always Have Paris by Jennifer Coburn
"Funny, engaging and real

I did not know exactly what to expect when I started reading this book. I was pleasantly surprised by how the author wove the memories she made in the present with her daughter and those of the past with her father. Coburn..." Read more of this review »

“A trip to Paris had sounded so adventurous when I was first talking about it a year earlier. People spoke about the city with dreamy longing, as though Paris possessed a magic that could not be found elsewhere. I'd never heard anyone talk about Paris without sighing. The city was a Promised Land that held appeal for most everyone: artists, lovers, even people who just liked cheese.”
Jennifer Coburn, We'll Always Have Paris: A Mother/Daughter Memoir

“Okay,” Jack said. “I’m not really sure what you want from me.” “I want you to stop trying to deny every feeling I ever have, Jack.  I want you to stop telling me not to feel bad when I already do. I want you to stop telling me I look fine when it’s so patently obvious that I don’t. I want you to stop being so uncomfortable when things aren’t perfect that you immediately start trying to pretend they are.” Even as the words were coming out of my mouth, I realized how unfair I was being. Yes, I wanted for him to accept my emotional reality. But only when it suited me. I also wanted him to tell me that the baby would be fine when it was what I needed to hear. At least Jack was consistent. I was a nut job.”
Jennifer Coburn, Tales From The Crib

“I am a thousand scattered pieces that no one has bothered to put together.”
Jennifer Coburn, Reinventing Mona
