DEER HUNTING IN PARIS: A MEMOIR OF GOD, GUNS, AND GAME MEAT What happens when a Korean-American preachers kid refuses to get married, travels the world, and quits being vegetarian? She meets her polar opposite on an online dating site while sitting at a caf in Paris, France and ends up in Paris, Maine, learning how to hunt. A memoir and a cookbook with recipes that skewer human foibles and celebrates DIY food culture, Deer Hunting in Paris is an unexpectedly funny exploration of a vanishing way of life in a complex cosmopolitan world. Sneezing madly from hay fever, Lee recovers her roots in rural Maine by running after a headless chicken, learning how to sight in a rifle, shooting skeet, and butchering animals. Along the way, she figures out how to keep her boyfriends conservative Republican family from mistaking her for a deer and shooting her at the clothesline.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Paula Lee is a food writer, architectural historian, and backwoods cook.
