Product description

Review

“…refined and worldly, [Lewis] memorably and candidly provides keen insights into the decades she inhabited; her discomfort over the 1960s sexual revolution doubles as astute social commentary…truly fascinating …an account of an extraordinary life.”

—Kirkus

“With Mistakes were Made (Some in French), you feel as if you’ve been sitting with Fiona for a long weekend of glorious storytelling. Her life has been full of great opportunities, of daring adventures, and she describes her search for the life she imagined but can’t define. When she buys a ruined chateau in the French countryside—against her husband’s wishes—you feel every jolt of the pain and humor she experiences. A truly fantastic book.” —Naomi Watts, actress

“I read Fiona’s beautiful book, alternatively holding onto my hat and clutching my pearls. Ventre bleu!” —David Mamet, playwright

“In Mistakes Were Made (Some in French), Fiona Lewis describes the hard work, subtle tricks, and cool reasoning necessary to restore a chateau in France, while allowing us an intimate look at her remarkable life—her childhood in England, her career as a model and actress, her misadventures with men in Paris and Los Angeles. Mistakes Were Made is an intimate rendering not only of the rescue of a beautiful house, but of the rescue and restoration of self.” —Susanna Moore, author of In the Cut

“Fiona Lewis takes us on a wild and hilarious ride from a storybook childhood in the English countryside to a glittering Hollywood career with a French fantasy escape—meeting famous lovers and intriguing locals along the way. With wit, wisdom and poignancy, Lewis asks the tough question: how do you define success, find your passion and not get lost along the way? Any Francophile with a Hollywood crush will devour this wonderful, sexy story.” —Kate Betts, author of My Paris Dream --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
