Jean Mandel

JEAN Mandel was raised in Berkeley, CA, and has lived in cities as far-flung as San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Austin, Salzburg, and Ann Arbor. With a resume that includes work as screenwriter, copywriter, translator, and blogger, she is especially proud of having edited the 2006 NFT Guide to Los Angeles. This essay was adapted from the work-in-progress, “The Mirror That Is Paris.”
