About J. Barlow
Julie Barlow (email@example.com) is a magazine journalist and travel writer who spent several years living in Paris. She recently published Sixty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong, a sort of travel guide for Americans who are puzzled by the French. In it, she explains why the French think, act, and organize themselves the way they do. At the moment, she is based in Montreal, where she writes regularly for the French-language magazine L'actualite, but she will soon be heading back to France to work on her next book, The Story of French. When she's not traveling, she's cooking, eating, drinking, and enjoying this North American corner of the French-speaking world as much as possible. Austin Macdonald (firstname.lastname@example.org) first came to Montreal for school. For three summers, while studying English Literature at McGill University, he worked as a tour guide in both Montreal and Quebec City. Since teaching English in Tokyo, counting down the millennium in Rio, and having a series of misadventures in the dot-com world, Austin has been working as a freelance writer concerned with urban affairs at large. His work has been published in Canadian magazines such as Toronto Life and Azure and in newspapers, including Globe and Mail, the National Post, and the Montreal Gazette.
