A Year In The Merde : The pleasures and perils of being a Brit in France EPUB
Part of the Paul West series
What are the French really like?
Paul West, a young Englishman arriving in Paris to start a new job, is about to find out.
They do eat a lot of cheese, some of which smells like pigs droppings.
They don t wash their armpits with garlic soap.
Going on strike really is the second national participation sport after petanque.
And, yes, they do use suppositories.
Less quaint than A Year in Provence, less chocolatey than Chocolat, A Year in the Merde will tell you how to get served by the grumpiest Parisian waiter; how to make perfect vinaigrette every time; how to make amour - not war; and how not to buy a house in the French countryside.
