Another meaty book from Wellesley author Paula Lee

paula lee wellesleyPaula Lee, who splits her time between Wellesley and West Paris, Maine, has published a memoir with the intriguing title: “Deer Hunting in Paris: A Memoir of God, Guns, and Game Meat.”

Lee says the story “starts out in Paris, France and shifts to Paris, Maine, with stops in Wellesley along the way.” The cheese shop and Morses Pond are among the places cited.

This book title might seem unusual, but not so much if you take a look at some of the previous ones from Lee, described in her Amazon bio as “a cultural historian and backwoods cook.” These titles include¬† “Meat, Modernity, and the Rise of the Slaughterhouse” and “Gorgeous Beasts: Animal Bodies in Historical Perspective.” On the way: “Game: A Global History.”
Lee says that her “Deer Hunting” book, not technically available until November, has risen up a few niche charts on Amazon, including one for Hunting in Maine. “I can only guess it’s because, as the unexpected success of ‘Duck Dynasty’ has evidenced, the subject of hunting has infiltrated the pop culture consciousness, and readers are looking for a book that makes them laugh.”
A couple of years back we made note of a self-published comic novel from Lee called “How to be a Homeless Frenchman.”
