Review "a deeply French yet idiosyncratic sensibility" Hortense on Tuesday Night

How to cope with the sexual revolution in Paris? A time when women in heterosexual couples are a "sorry, forgotten minority".  - Witty and original, Hortense on Tuesday Night introduces a remarkable new voice.

Named a "top five story" by Narrative Magazine!

“Hortense on Tuesday Nights”- had a sparse, mysterious quality which engaged me. The point of view was culturally ambiguous - and distinctly un-American - which I found refreshing.judge Elizabeth Bard, author of Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, With Recipes

Houzelle's voice is surely unique: a deeply French yet idiosyncratic sensibility filtered through an English that's fluid, penetrating and all her own. "Hortense" takes the reader into a vividly rendered moment in feminist conscious-raising, and even more vividly into the personal perspective of a young woman exploring the new horizons and unexpected pitfalls of relationships among women. Acute, funny and unblinking. - (FIVE STARS) Amazon reviewer
