For the French, says Sciolino, seduction isn't simply a matter of romantic intrigue; it's a way of life that shapes business, politics, personal relationships, and more. As the longtime Paris bureau chief of the New York Times, Sciolino should know. Here she helps us understand the quality that really defines France. For the French-struck and escapists, this could be a diversion.
