L’Appart has plenty of details, often told in sardonic humor, about life, food, culture, cost and rules of living in the culinary capital.
But it mainly focuses on the never-ending setbacks experienced by a results-oriented American in a city whose laws seem designed specifically to delay closing the deal on buying that perfect apartment…
…then going through endless torture with untrustworthy and (it turns out) incompetent contractors.
We live in Miami, so evil...careless...corrupt...disappearing contractors are actually considered the good ones!
Many here exist only in a circle of hell below corrupt/incompetent.
So we feel Lebovitz’s pain while he endures strings of five figure costs for perpetually delayed, always shoddy work worth less than four figures when the dust clears.
Will our hero live, sans nervous breakdown, to see the completion of his dream Paris kitchen in an apartment that he will own?
