Trott, Jean Kay in Paris
Yes, you read that right-- a novella by Josephine Trott, composer of Melodious Double Stops! Inspired during her 1932 trip to Europe with her adopted daughter, the book follows the exploits of a well-to-do young American woman who flees to France after a break-up with her boyfriend. A bit ditzy and definitely challenged by the language, Jean Kay gets in and out of scrapes with hilarious cluelessness. It's Bridget Jones in a more innocent time!
