Abstract:

How to Die in Paris is an edgy, poetic, often darkly comic, memoir of a young middle-class black woman who escapes a tortured past in New York to pursue a new life in Europe--only to find herself broke, desperate, and contemplating suicide on the streets of Paris. Penniless, scared, and hoping for rescue, Thomas turns to a series of unlikely male suitors: an impoverished Italian who exposes her to the reality of immigrant struggle, a fast-talking squatter who lures her into Paris's street youth culture, and a beautiful Tunisian who takes her home ... only to introduce her to a world of pain.
