Paris or Die

A Memoir

«'joltingly alive, beautiful and terrifying' – Helen Garner, The Age

‘By turns madcap and heart-breaking, Paris or Die is a witty and wise reflection on the power of cities to help us become ourselves. I devoured it and I can’t wait to read more from my new favorite writer.’ – Lauren Elkin, author of Flâneuse: Women Walk the City

'A vivid memoir of damage, grace and healing which manages to be funny, irreverent and moving all at once.' – Luke Davies, author of Candy, Totem, script writer of Lion

‘Jayne Tuttle’s writing is a delicious delight.’ – Christos Tsiolkas, author of Damascus, Merciless Gods, Barracuda, The Slap

‘An electric rollercoaster ride through the streets of Paris, this is also a moving memoir of love, exploration and loss – at times utterly joyful, at times gut-wrenching and always fierce and beautifully written.’ – Jemma Birrell, artistic director of Sydney Writers’ Festival, 2012–2016

‘I was entranced from start to finish. A tantalising tour through the life of a young, spontaneous, in love, in lust, foreigner whose inimitable joie de vivre opens her to a Paris that yields its local charms, its particular customs and its unexpected dangers …’ – Martine Murray, author of The Last Summer of Ada Bloom, How to Make a Bird

‘A riveting, moving, funny and at times shocking memoir about a young Australian woman whose dream journey to the city of light turns into a nightmare. I loved it.’ – Jennifer Higgie, writer and editor Frieze magazine

‘Moving, raw and more than a little bit sexy, I practically inhaled this book about a woman determined to grab on to art, love and life with everything she’s got in the world’s most romantic city.’ – Rachel Power, author of The Divided Heart: Art and Motherhood

‘Joyous, sexy and compelling … a wonderful read.’ – Paddy O’Reilly, author of Peripheral Vision, The Wonders

'
Tuttle, a writer, actor and charismatically charming first-time author, takes us on quite a journey. Her writing is pitch-perfect and pacy – very, very funny at times, and raw and affecting at others.' – Linda Jaivin, The Saturday Paper

‘A latter-day Bonjour Tristesse.’ – Steve Carroll, Sydney Morning Herald / The Age

‘A witty and observant raconteur, and merciless chronicler of her own foibles, she’s like the love child of David Sedaris and Helen Garner.’ – Linda Jaivin, The Saturday Paper

‘A love letter to Paris: not the idealised city Tuttle had imagined it to be, but a real and imperfect place where she feels “alive, more alive than ever before”’ – Gemma Nisbet, The West Australian

‘A rollicking yarn that is humorous, poignant and sexy, and always evocative of Paris.’ – Graham Erbacher, The Australian

‘Tuttle’s honesty and raw self-exposure creeps on you, as does her own near-death experience.’ – Wendy Mason, The Herald Sun 

‘Beautifully written with an unfiltered lens, Paris or Die is gritty, funny and heartbreakingly real.’ – Emily Harms, The Wheeler Centre»
