Everything you wanted to know about France but were too afraid to ask... At eighteen Lucy Wadham abandoned England and fell into the arms of a Frenchman. Twenty-five years later, having married, had children, and divorced in France, Lucy is perfectly placed to explore the differences between our two countries. Here she examines every aspect of French life - from sex and adultery to money, happiness, race and politics - in this funny and engrossing account of our most intriguing neighbour.
Didn't really enjoy the first part of this book where the author keeps talking about sexual lives of French people when in fact she's basing her views on a few Parisians people. Overall I felt the historic facts in the book were very good and accurate but she should have left sociology. I'm French and didn't recognize my country in half of this book.
