    Musings and words of wisdom by a French journalist and historian living the United States

  • What Makes an American?

    "To become an American is a process which resembles a conversion. It is not so much a new country that one adopts as a new creed."

  • Love in America

    "The problem of love in America seems to be the resultant of conflicting and rather unrealistic ways of approaching it.... It is as if the experience of being in love could only be one of two things: a superhuman ecstasy, the way of reaching heaven on earth and in pairs; or a psychopathic condition to be treated by specialists"

  • Notes on the Conventions

    "I had never attended a political convention in America. As a foreign correspondent it was my duty to describe what I saw and heard in such a way that my distant readers might have a picture of the scenes I witnessed and of the atmosphere in which I found myself."
